The Perils of Fenway Park, 2016 – Sully Baseball Daily Photo at Noon for January 30, 2018


OK, yes. I am a Red Sox fan. I love Fenway. I have a romance about it. But here is the deal, some of the seats suck.

This is the view from my seats the last time I was there in 2016. Notice something? THE SEATS DO NOT FACE THE ACTION!

If I sat, looking forward, I would be looking at Mookie Betts in right field. My head was turned and I looked THROUGH fans in order to see the pitch.

Fenway is great but newer stadiums figured out how to fix this basic problem.
