Red Sox: Scenes from Fenway opener
A firsthand look at the experience of taking in the Boston Red Sox home opener at Fenway Park.
A cool breeze flowed through the ballpark, making the temperature that hovered in the mid-50’s feel a bit chillier. At least the showers that threatened to come passing through held off, although it’s uncertain how many in attendance were paying attention to the gray clouds overhead that dared to try to block out the scattered rays of sunshine. The focus was on the field for the first home game of the season for the Boston Red Sox.
I sat in Lodge section 157 on the third base side. A bit of an awkward angle where you could’t see anything hit down the left field line, but the seats were still close to the action with a good view of home plate. Since I wasn’t willing to shell out several hundred dollars for the inflated prices of Opening Day, I couldn’t have hoped for any better than this.
Here, I’ll show you the view.
Not too bad, right?
