Home of the Boston Red Sox
June 24, 2003
Fenway Park and Wrigley Field are the two stadiums that I visited, but didn’t really document my experiences or take many pictures. Thus, the reviews for each of them are by memory and so they’re pretty short. I hope to visit both stadiums again soon so I can review them properly.
Fenway Park was the first ballpark I ever visited that wasn’t Jacobs Field. My family was on vacation in Boston and since we had a free evening, my dad and I thought we should check out the stadium. This visit was before I got it in my head that I should visit every Major League stadium in North America, and it was before the age of ubiquitous camera phones, so I didn’t take any pictures.
As a whole, Fenway Park was pretty awesome. The neighborhood surrounding the park, even in 2003, was phenomenal, and the atmosphere was electric even though the game was against the Tigers, a team that would go on to lose over 100 games in 2003. Fenway hadn’t undergone all of its Theo Epstein renovations yet, so it was pretty run down in places, but it was still a great experience. I hope to visit Fenway again soon, perhaps in the fall for a September game.
