If you’re a fan of baseball history, there’s no better place to see a game than Fenway Park in Boston. If you’re a fan of watching a game in comfort, there’s no worse place to see a game than Fenway Park.
I prefer both. However, I’m willing to give up a little comfort for a few hours to enjoy a game in America‘s oldest major league ballpark. Fenway opened on April 20, 1911 (3 years before a game was ever played at Wrigley Field in Chicago). And if there were ever an argument about how much we’ve grown as a people, in size, one need only sit in one of those ancient seats for several hours to realize how true that is.
And what better match-up to see at the venerable venue than Red Sox vs Yankees! I was fortunate to witness that one in person on Sunday. And, as a Red Sox fan, very happy with the outcome. We were also treated to a pre-game ceremony honoring former second baseman, and color commentator, Jerry Remy on the 30th anniversary of his broadcast career with NESN.
Any true baseball fan would be well-advised to pay a visit to historic Fenway Park. We’re fortunate to have such a place in close proximity to us here in Connecticut.
