Boston Red Sox/Boston Celtics/New England Patriots Reviews

If you're ever in Boston, you gotta buy yourself some tickets... even if you're not a sports fan. It's all about the experience man, and nothing does it like a football/basketball/baseball game. Since basketball isn't till late fall, I would try to catch a baseball game before midseason ends, and whenever football season starts... you gotta cheer for the hometown Patriots (3 championships!)
Fenway Park is the home ballpark of the Boston Red Sox baseball club. The park, the oldest of all Major League Baseball stadiums still in use, opened in 1912, and the current season, 2007, marks Fenway's 95th birthday. Fenway hosted the Major League Baseball All-Star Game in 1946, 1961, and 1999, and has also played host to nine World Series. Fenway is considered to be one of the most historic and tradition-rich stadiums in all of baseball.
The stadium is most famous for the left field wall called the "Green Monster". Constructed in 1934, the 37-foot, two-inch high wall is 240 feet long, has a 22-foot deep foundation, and was constructed from 30,000 pounds of Toncan iron. Previously, a 23-½-foot tall screen protected cars and pedestrians on Lansdowne Street. However, the screen was replaced after the 2002 season with more seating atop the Green Monster.
It depends on where you go to... one is less expensive than the other (basketball tickets are obviously more expensive than baseball tickets), but check into it and head on over to them. From Fenway Park to the Garden and Gillette Stadium, it's all a blast! You gotta get directions because I dont have them on hand right now. Have fun!
