Fenway Gridiron

Saturday, November 11, 2017 – Fenway Park, Loge box 137

UMass 44, Maine 31

On a sunny but cold Saturday afternoon, UMass squared off against Maine as part of the Fenway Gridiron Series.  I’ve lived in both states but didn’t attend either schoool; I was just there to get my Fenway fix a month after the last home baseball game was played.

Everyone's been telling me to watch football to help take my mind off baseball during the off-season. Not sure why, but it doesn't seem to be working.

I was treated to an entertaining (albeit cold) game.  UMass scored a touchdown on their first possession, then Maine ran back the kickoff for a touchdown of their own.  UMass went up 24-7 in the second quarter, but a safety and a touchdown with a two-point conversion helped Maine tie it back up.  UMass jumped out to another two-score lead in the third, but Maine got close and had a chance to take the lead with two minutes left in the game.  My seat was behind home plate, but with an attendance just over 12,000, there were plenty of empties to choose from.  I started out in the bleachers, and spent the first half moving to a different section with every change of possession, so I could see the game from all angles.

It was fun to try to capture pictures of the game action.

As someone who normally photographs baseball, I thought football would be harder with lots of people moving around on every play, but I was actually able to get some good shots of the action. I found it easier to photograph than hockey.  An album with all my pictures from every angle is available on Flickr.  If you’ve ever wondered what Fenway Park looks like reflected in a tuba, check out the album.
