Sox, city reach deal on Fenway liquor sales

The Boston Red Sox said yesterday that they have reached an agreement with Mayor Thomas M. Menino, Boston police, and several community groups to begin selling mixed alcoholic beverages to fans with seats throughout Fenway Park.

During a hearing before the Boston Licensing Board, Red Sox officials said they sealed the agreement during a Monday meeting with Boston police and other city officials. The Red Sox agreed to limit the sale of the mixed drinks to five refreshment stands and to move one of those stands farther away from the bleacher section.

The board could approve the proposal as early as today. The Red Sox would still need the approval of the state Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission, a process that could take another month, said Dennis A. Quilty, the attorney who represented the Red Sox at the hearing.
