America's Most Beloved Ballpark

How can I describe the experience of watching a game at historic Fenway Park?  I will do my best, but you simply must take in a game if you're ever in the Boston area.

The vibe emanating from Fenway on any Red Sox game night, whether home or away, is contagious! Even if you don't have tickets to the game, walking around Fenway on Yawkey Way or Lansdowne Street is sure to be a great time.  There are numerous bars filled with huge plasma TV's loudly broadcasting the game, and buffalo wings and beer abound.

As in most stadiums, the main hallway with food and beverage stands is loud, busy and sometimes chaotic, but once you find your section and emerge from the depths and see that beautiful green monster, you will be left breathless.
The historic Fenway Park!
  Fenway Park is the oldest of all current Major League Baseball stadiums.  And thanks to the "Fenway Faithful", a new record has just been set making Fenway Park the only ballpark to sell out for 456 consecutive games!  Not one empty seat to be found during all of those games...and I'm sure the record will continue.  We do love our Red Sox up here in Boston and New England, no matter how overpriced the tickets are, lol!

A couple of fun facts:

"The Green Monster": The most famous feature of Fenway is the looming left field wall that measures 37 feet, 2 inchest (11.3 meters).  Mostly known for preventing home runs, it is also the inspiration for the Red Sox mascot, Wally, the green monster.

"The Lone Red Seat": Which is exactly that...a lone red seat in the right field bleachers marking the longest measurable in-park home run hit by Ted Williams and was rumored to hit a Yankees fan on the head who was sitting in that seat.

Fenway Park has also been featured in many movies including Fever Pitch, Good Will Hunting, and Field of Dreams among others.  It has also hosted various other events including concerts, political speeches and this year, even a Citizenship Ceremony

Great blog - I was associated with cable TV while living in Maine and got to several games at the NESN super-box, right beside the Monster. Can share some really funny stories regarding Boston Bruins (the other NESN franchise), who were always there at the same time and getting sloppy drunk, lol!
