Billy Teed Takes His Daughter To Fenway Park For Her First Red Sox Game
In the late 1980s, I attended my first games at Fenway. I’d go with my dad and we’d just head to the park on game day and see what if any tickets we could get our hands on!
Here are a few pictures of our day together!
Fenway Park is a national treasure in our state. It’s like a living, breathing time capsule. For three hours, you share the air with 34,000 real people and tens of millions of friendly ghosts who were once in the same exact spot. They watched Babe Ruth pitch, or Ted Williams hit, or Yaz play the Green Monster like nobody else!
When I was a kid it was players like Mo Vaughn and Wade Boggs and even a young, steroid free Roger Clemons. Yesterday, it was time to pass on a love for Boston and our baseball team to the next generation of my family.
MacKenzie, is my 11 year old daughter, and that’s a perfect age to take her to the park! MacKenzie and I arrived at the park about 3 hours before the game.
A game at Fenway Park is not only about the game and seeing the Red Sox play. There is so much more to see outside Fenway and its immediate area. Taking a walk around the park before a game allows you to enjoy all the little things that make attending a Red Sox game so unique and makes the experience complete you.
Some of the highlights of our day was, Lunch at the park with a unique view from The Bleacher Grill and Pub under the park, Jarrod Saltalamacchia signed her ball as our seats were right behind the Sox Bullpen and how hard it rained starting in the 5th!
She was amazed at how fast they got the field covered! We talked about the Green Monster and how there used to not be any seats on top of it!
Fenway lifts up and holds you in it timeless glow long after you’ve left the park.
