A Walk in the Park, Fenway Park

After watching the Red Sox play on Father’s Day, there was a special promotion called “Walk in the park post-game”. We weren’t sure exactly what that meant, but we stood in line and talked to a few fans. They said that after the Mother’s Day game, they let the fans walk around the field. How cool would that be?

Here was our first view. We were in the outfield. Our first stop was the bullpen,  way in the back where the pitchers warm-up:

We got to walk around the field:

Besides getting the opportunity to walk around the field, they displayed memorabilia, including pictures:

They call this the Pesky pole:

It’s the right field foul pole. It was named after Johnny Pesky, who played for the Red Sox from 1942 to 1952.

Here’s the dugout. It was dirty!

    I am curious, how long did you have to wait in line before entering the field? Were you in the middle of the pack? Also, how long did it take to go around the field? Worried about timing if going with little ones.

    Thanks!
