Red Sox: Top-10 reasons to get excited about baseball in 2018
There’s a decent amount of turnover in the game of baseball. Players are constantly signed, traded, and cut at the drop of a hat and our favorite player one day could fade into obscurity the next. But through everything, there has been one constant in Boston baseball: an oddly shaped venue known as Fenway Park.

It is the cathedral for Red Sox fans everywhere. It’s the place where every generation of Red Sox fans for 106 years has gone. Win or lose, every day in the ballpark is a treat. The beginning of baseball season means, for me and countless other fans, that after months of huddling up by the fire to endure the cold weather, it’s finally time to head back to the park and leave the worries of the world behind for an afternoon.
Nothing comes close to the smell of overpriced Fenway Franks, the clean-cut grass, and the excitement of baseball in the air. The walls of Fenway Park have been home to greats from eras past like Babe Ruth and Ted Williams to premier stars today like Dustin Pedroia and Mookie Betts.
It’s the most storied ballpark in all of baseball and it’s worth cherishing. It’s one of the biggest reasons I’m excited about the start of this baseball season and I hope it stays that way for many opening days to come.
