Game 1 A.D.

Monday, April 3, 2017 – Fenway Park, Section 32
Red Sox 5, Pirates 3
Every year, I make the same tweet on the morning of the home opener:

#OpeningDay is my favorite holiday. Sorry, Christmas!

Though this marked my 17th Fenway Park Opening Day, there were a couple of things different this year: [...]

We’re Home

Monday, April 11, 2016 – Fenway Park, Section 30
Orioles 9, Red Sox 7
Opening Day – the “real” one, at home – is my favorite day of the year.  This year it reminded me of a scene in the lastest Star Wars movie:

My favorite pictures from the day follow:
Although the Red Sox jumped out to a [...]

There’s No Place Like Home

Monday, April 13, 2015 – Fenway Park, Section 32
Red Sox 9, Nationals 4
This year’s home opener was my fifteenth Fenway Park Opening Day.  It’s always a welcome sight, but after a disappointing season last year and a record-setting snowfall all winter, plus the fact that we were already 13 days into April, I was definitely [...]

Ringing In The New Year

Friday, April 4, 2014 – Fenway Park, Section 42
Brewers 6, Red Sox 2
I had good luck over the winter when the four-game Sox Pax went onsale, and I managed to get through the Virtual Waiting Room early enough to get a package that included Opening Day before they sold out.  So while I didn’t need [...]

A Warm Welcome Home

Monday, April 8, 2013 – Fenway Park, Section 36
Red Sox 3, Orioles 1
Opening Day at Fenway Park is always one of my favorite days of the year.  Thanks to events like Christmas at Fenway (coupled with the Fenway Park Yard Sale) and Truck Day, plus my trip to spring training, I feel connected to the [...]

Home Cooking

Friday, April 13, 2012 – Fenway Park, Section 33
Red Sox 12, Rays 2
Opening Day at Fenway Park is always exciting, no matter how the season may start off on the road.  That’s a good thing, because for the second straight year the team got off to a less-than-stellar start, stumbling through a 1-5 opening road [...]

You’ve Gotta Start Somewhere

Friday, April 8, 2011 – Fenway Park, Section 36
Red Sox 9, Yankees 6
To say the Red Sox hadn’t gotten the season off to a good start would be an understatement.  They had stumbled through Texas and Cleveland and found themselves with a dismal 0-6 record, which was especially stunning considering the improvements they had made [...]

Happy Easter!

Sunday, April 4, 2010 – Fenway Park, Section 38
Red Sox 9, Yankees 7
Easter Sunday wouldn’t have been my first preference for an Opening Day game.  It was weird to have it at night, and I’d rather ease into the season a little bit before diving right in to a Red Sox/Yankees matchup.  But I love [...]

Well Worth the Wait

Tuesday, April 7, 2009 – Fenway Park, Section 41
Red Sox 5, Rays 3
On Tuesday morning I got up early and went in to work for half a day. I left just after noon, and was happy to be able to find a parking space at the T station without any problem. That got me to [...]

Making a Dry Run

Monday, April 6, 2009
Opening Day, Take 1
I made an Opening Day dry run this morning – emphasis on the word “dry,” because it wasn’t raining when I got to Fenway at 10:00. In past years, I’ve had trouble getting a parking space at a T station for weekday games. One year I was one of [...]
