Return Trip

Saturday, July 22, 2017 – Hadlock Field, Portland
Yard Goats 5, Sea Dogs 0
Usually I only make it to one Sea Dogs game a year, but this year I had a second one.  It came only two weeks after the first, but my return didn’t come soon enough to see top prospect Rafael Devers, who had [...]

Tuesday, July 18, 2017 – Fenway Park, Section 34
Red Sox 5, Blue Jays 4, 15 innings
After the All-Star Break, the Red Sox opened by splitting a four-game series with the Yankees, including a 16-inning loss on Saturday followed by a doubleheader on Sunday.  So much for resting up!  Now the Blue Jays were in town [...]

Short Stop

Saturday, July 8, 2017 – Hadlock Field, Portland
Fightin’ Phils 4, Sea Dogs 3
After a span of four Red Sox games in six days, I had a gap of almost three weeks before I’d be back to Fenway.  So while the big leaguers went on a ten-game road trip that would be followed by the All-Star [...]

Bird’s Eye View

Wednesday, June 28, 2017 – Pavilion Section 20
Twins 4, Red Sox 1
On Wednesday it was time for my fourth game in the past six days.  But this one was unique because it was part of a technical conference for work.  There’s a conference room on the fifth floor, right across the hall from the press [...]

Cruising With Sale

Monday, June 26, 2017
Red Sox 4, Twins 1
After going to two games over the weekend, Monday found me headed back in to Fenway again. And this time it was Sale Day, only the third time this season I’ve been able to watch the ace at work.
This was also the third of four games in my [...]

Summer Doldrums

Sunday, June 25, 2017 – Fenway Park, Section 43
Angels 4, Sox 2
In the excitement of Friday’s ceremony to retire Big Papi’s number, it would have been easy to miss the news that the Red Sox had claimed veteran righty Doug Fister off waivers.  He would be taking over the fifth starter role most recently occupied [...]

Friday, June 23, 2017 – Fenway Park, Pavilion Standing Room
Red Sox 9, Angels 4
I left work early on the day of Big Papi’s number retirement ceremony, and even with worse than usual traffic, I got there just as the gates were opening.  I grabbed an early bite to eat and went out to the grandstand [...]

Sent Home Happy

Monday, June 12, 2017 – Section 33
Red Sox 6, Phillies 5, 11 innings
Knowing that I would be going to a Sunday night game and then heading back in the next night, I had taken Monday off from work.  Sunday’s game had gone past midnight, making it almost 2:00 by the time I got home, so [...]

Summer Rerun

Sunday, June 11, 2017 – Fenway Park, Section 36
Tigers 8, Red Sox 3
After all the cold games I went to all the way through May, it was a relief to have some hot summer weather finally.  But considering my seat was in the bleachers and the day was over 90 degrees, I was glad it [...]

A Memorial Day to Forget

Sunday, May 28, 2017 – Fenway Park, Section 43
Mariners 5, Red Sox 0
Sunday of Memorial Day weekend brought a sunny morning, and my warmest game of the year so far.  (With all the cold ones I’ve sat through all it took was 62° to beat my previous high.)  I drove in early and parked for [...]
