Results tagged ‘ Nick Blackburn Fenway Park ’
I got to the ballpark a little bit early today, and decided I might as well tag along on the official Fenway Park tour to get a better sense of history at the oldest stadium in baseball.
After all, this is my first trip to Boston and I’d never been to Fenway before the Twins’ four-game series here.
It turned out to be a great decision, as I had the chance to learn a lot about the history of the park, while also getting a chance to see all the vantage points of the stadium, as well as the Red Sox Hall of Fame.
I took quite a few pictures, and decided to upload a few of my favorites, including one of the famed red seat in right field where Ted Williams crushed the longest homer in Fenway history, 502 feat from home plate at Section 42, Row 37, Seat 21.
Here are a few of those pictures, as well as lineups for both teams:
