Back in 2005, I joined the waiting list to get season tickets at Fenway Park. Just waned a 10-game pack. Here it is seven years later, and I got the e-mail for the offer. I got right field seats, which I actually enjoy. But, over time, I’m going to see if I can start working my way down towards the dugout.
The Sox, however, need to pull something together. My first game was against the powerful Texas Rangers. Lester lasted only into the 4th inning, and Hamilton blasted the “Red Seat Rattler.” The Red Seat is in Section 42 of the right field bleachers, 501 feet away from home plate. Ted Williams hit a ball that knocked a fan on the head in that seat. It’s said to be the longest hit in Fenway Park. My first game, Hamilton hit a ball that went like a space shot well over us and to our right, towards Section 42. My wife thought that he threatened the record.
The Ranger fans did travel well. There was a good turnout of Texans, and why not with Kinsler, Hamilton, Young, and a well improved pitching staff?
