Businessman offers to outbid Red Sox for Yawkey Way license

An attorney and restaurateur from Everett has offered to outbid the Red Sox for a license to sell food and drink along Yawkey Way on game days at Fenway Park, throwing a curveball at the Boston Redevelopment Authority’s exclusive negotiations with the ball club.

Joseph P. Marchese Jr. wrote a letter to the BRA last month — one day after the Globe reported that the Sox were seeking a permanent extension of their current concession rights — saying he would pay $3 million for a 10-year contract. His offer is roughly double the annual rate paid by the Sox since the franchise began leasing the public street during the 2003 baseball season.
