Play Ball! Fenway Park, Boston MA
First a confession: due to crappy weather and being short for time I have not been on a doorscursion in over a month 😦 so again this week I dig into my archives. This time back to a visit a few years ago to the oldest park in major league baseball – Fenway Park in Boston.
What this place lacks in wonderful doors, it more than makes up for in history.
Home of the Red Sox since 1912 Fenway has a seating capacity of just under 38,000 making it one of the smaller parks in the major leagues, but that just adds to the charm of the place.
For a baseball fan or a sports fan in general, visits to places like Fenway or Wrigley Field in Chicago make for top tier bucket list material, so I consider myself pretty lucky to have been to games here on a number of occasions.
And the fact that Boston is a little over a 6-hour drive from me makes it a do-able road trip destination for a 3 or 4-day weekend.
Arriving a good hour before game time is a great way to soak in the atmosphere and all of that history of this glorious old building.
Of course when the crowds start filing in and the liquid refreshments start flowing it only adds to the show. It doesn’t matter who they’re playing or even who wins – attending a game at Fenway is an event.
As you make your way into the stadium the pennants and banners are a reminder of the teams’ successes over the years.
The last time we were there the skies were threatening right up until game time, but as we made our way to our seats the clouds began to scatter making it a perfect spring day for a ball game.
The famous left field wall known as the Big Green Monstah (that’s “monster” to you non-chowdah heads) was covered with one of the biggest flags I’ve ever seen.
As an homage to the history of the place I played around in Lightroom with one of my game shots to bring out that old time feel.
As always, thanks so such for visiting 🙂
