First Trip To Fenway

I bought the tickets at, but didn’t look at the seating chart. It was an afternoon game against Seattle, a chance to see Ichiro. We got to the park early and headed to our seats. Up and up we climbed, into the cavernous right field grandstand. Section 1… Row 18… Seats 1, 2, and 3… The last row and very last three seats in the grandstand. Past a support column, we could see home plate. Barely. But that day, with my two wide-eyed young sons on their first trip to Fenway, we had the best seats in the house.

As appeared in the Providence Journal’s Fenway Park Centennial Special Section on April 11th.
