Fenway Park Blog – Boston Duck Tours
For as long as I can remember, the Boston Red Sox have always had a special place in my life. From my days as a toddler to my adult life now, keeping up with the Red Sox has been a priority in my life. This is because I was born in Massachusetts and it is thereby my duty to support the Sox till the day I die, well at least according to my family. I am not alone is this practice, a vast amount of my friends feel the same way as do their families. I think this is why the Red Sox have such a unique fan base, because we’re all crazy diehards. So if you are from Massachusetts and haven’t been to Fenway Park, you aren’t fulfilling your duties as a Massachusetts resident. If you aren’t from Massachusetts, you should also visit Fenway Park to see some of the craziest sports fans in the world and experience the environment it offers.
Fenway Park itself is the oldest, most historic stadium in the MLB today. Erected in 1912, Fenway Park has over 105 years in existence with countless baseball games and memories transpiring. It has been the home for greats such as Ted Williams, Babe Ruth, Carl Yastrzemski, Manny Ramirez, and Big Papi aka David Ortiz who are all first ballot hall of famers. Fenway has other facets that separate it from other ballparks such as the green monster, a 37 foot tall wall in left field and perhaps the most exciting place in the league to watch a baseball game. Additionally, there are the two foul poles named after Carleton Fisk and Johnny Pesky, and the Lone Red Seat in the lower right field bleachers where Ted Williams hit the farthest home run at Fenway Park (502 feet). These are just some visible examples of the broad history of what has occurred at the field.
Fenway Park also separates itself through the environment in which it creates during a Red Sox baseball game. Red Sox nation is different from other fan bases, these fans truly care about each and every game. This pushes the Red Sox team to go all out every single game, which makes it possible to not ever have a bad time there. In the case that they do lose, there are many things that can cheer a person up such as an infamous Fenway Frank, singing “Sweet Caroline” during the 7th inning stretch, or going to one of the bars down the street after the game is over.
When in Boston, everyone should try to experience Fenway at least once in their lives whether that be a game or a tour that they run. I promise you will not regret your experience.
