I finally made it over to the most historic park (arguably) in baseball – Fenway – this past weekend to see the Sox play the Braves. We took a tour of the park at 4:00 pm before the 7:15 pm game. You can find the tour info here. The tour was great if you’re really interested in learning the history of the stadium and team. They take you to three or four different location in the stands and sit for 10-15 min or so at each spot while the guide tells you different stories and facts. The coolest part was getting to go up on the Green Monster (“Green Monstah” as they say), the famous 37′ wall out in left field. According to our guide it was originally built to shield a new-car sales lot that used to be located behind the wall. We were up there during batting practice and one of the players cranked one over the wall right into our tour group, which made it even more fun. The disappointing part of the tour was you don’t get to go down on the field (which some people say was because we went to close in time to a game, and would have been able to if we went at an earlier time), or see any of the locker rooms, which is what I was really hoping to do. It was still cool though to get in there early and walk around and here some interesting stories. If you’re going to a game and have the time you should check it out. Full disclosure – the Braves didn’t play too well and were beat pretty handily by the Sox 8-4.
