There is no way you can call yourself a true baseball fan unless you have made the trip to Boston and watched a game at Fenway Park.

Without a doubt, I first must say that Red Sox fans are truly the most dedicated and enthusiastic fans in all of baseball. I have been to several ballparks across the country, and never before have I witnessed such fan support. It was amazing to see the sellout crowd on a Tuesday night....you really don't see that in many other stadiums.

Anyhow, as far as the ballpark goes....it really was amazing. We had seats in the outfield bleachers (and NO, there really aren't bleachers out there...they have individual seats). So for anyone who has never been to the stadium but is turned off by bleacher seating, know that in Fenway there are no true "bleacher" seats.

The one thing that stunk about our bleacher seats is that no beer man came around selling beer to the outfield bleachers, which meant that we had to get up several times to by beer from a stand inside the concourse.

Tickets are hard to come by.....the only seats offered on the team website were in "obstructed view" areas. You'll also find that prices for the game skyrocket. We actually paid almost $10 over face value for each ticket through a ticket broker. Good luck bidding for them on ebay...prices were almost doubled!

Traffic appeared to be a complete mess around the Fenway park area, so we decided to take the subway like so many people recommended to us. It was really simple and cheap, but after the game, the train was packed full! It still was way better than driving.

Fenway Park is a must see for any baseball fan. The stadium is a classic. The Green Monster is unforgettable. And the fans are the most enthusiastic in baseball. Throw in the chance to see Pedro pitch, and you've got yourself one unforgettable night of baseball.
