What is the best way to drive to Fenway Park and where should I park?
If you don't mind paying like $40 or something, you can park in one of the parking lots nearby. Good luck finding street parking at ANYTIME there, and on a game day? You could get lucky. If you want to go real early, you can probably find something, but pay attention to when the meters stop running.
I agree with the other guy, take the T. Or if you want, park your car near a stop on the green line, and then take it.
Is there a certain place in Fenway Park where you can get autographs before and after a game?
If you go down by the dugouts they might sign some things. I was at a game against the Rangers in August and sitting a few rows behind the Texas dugout. It looked like some of them were signing fans' stuff. I can't remember if the Sox players were but I think they were.
What are the best tickets at Fenway Park for the Red Sox games?
trust me it doesnt matter if hes a sox fan, once he walks on yawkey he will start drooling and not care about where he sits, and its a fairly small park-no nosebleeds, however state street pavilion is a pretty baller place to sit
He is somewhat, but not totally, he actually had more home runs on the road (10), than he did at home (7). The rest of his stats were much better at Fenway though, especially doubles, the guy hit 35 doubles at home, only 19 on the road. The guy can take that big swing and hit fly balls off the Green Monster at home, but not on the road so much.Also, he did manage to hit over .300 on the road too, though his slugging percentage was much higher at Fenway because of the Green Monster doubles.
He is an excellent player though, as a Yankee fan, I admire him tremendously. He makes contact, plays hard, and has a lot of heart.
I think you are wrong in calling Jeter an average player. The guy is a .316 career hitter, and is well on his way to over 3000 hits. No, he has never won a batting title, but in his career he has hit .349, .344, .338. .324 (twice) and .322. He has finished second in batting twice and third once, and in other years, his average would have won batting titles. Jeter would be a star on any team.He's hardly an "average" player. Very poor statement.
Either at the wellington, Qincy Adams or Riverside T stops, depending on which direction you come from
All three are well outside the city, you just take the train in
Riverside is in the Green D line, just get off at the Fenway stop. Wellington is on the Ornge line, and Quincy Adams is on the Red Line. Transfer to the Green Line outbound (any line but E) and get off at Kenmore (or fenway if you are on the D line), and just walk to the park
Is Fenway Park named after the same guy from Roush-Fenway Racing?
New England Sport Ventures and the Boston Red Sox themselves ( with John Henry as the primary owner) own Fenway Park. So in a way yes. Fenway is not named after John since John has only had possession of the Sox for about 8 years.
What does the black flag at Fenway park mean/signify?
The Black Flag you are asking about is the POW-MIA flag to honor U.S. servicemen listed as Prisoners of War and Missing In Action. You also see this flag flying over government buildings throughout the country.
It flies below the American Flag from the tallest flag pole in Fenway Park - which is above the Press Box
Going to Fenway Park from Maine and want to park and ride the T.?
Take 95S to 93S. Get off in Medford and park at Wellington Station (on the Orange Line). Take the Orange Line inbound. At either Haymarket or North Station, change the the Green Line inbound, any train except the "E" line. Get off at Kenmore and follow the crowd.
The suggestions for Woodland and Riverside are ridiculous. It makes no sense to drive to the west side of Boston when you are coming from the north. It would add at least half an hour of driving each way.
why is fenway park considered such a "weird" place to play baseball?
Its small for one
The monster can knock down balls that would otherwise be HRs in other stadiums
There are also dead spots in the monster that can just drop a ball almost straight down
The scoreboard in the monster sticks out off the wall
If the ball is hit right it can bounce off at a weird angle
center field is a triangle
In that triangle facing the right side is a low wall that sometimes creates ground rule doubles
The wall in right field has angles that can either suck a ball in, or toss them out to right
There is pretty much no foul territory down the left field line.
Don't get off at the Fenway stop! It's not for Fenway Park, it's for the Fenway neighborhood. Get off at Kenmore with everyone else on the train and follow the crowd to Fenway Park. Or if they are jus milling about, walk up Brookline Ave. You can see it once you pass the buildings on the corner of Kenmore Square.
If you do happen to get out at Fenway, there are signs directing you down the path between buildings and beside the tracks. Kenmore is much better though.
Could I buy the 9/30 Red Sox from Fenway Park today? or I only could buy it from web site?
Assuming you want to get 2 or more seats together, all available tickets are sold out. Have been since the day tickets went on sale in February.
Two ways to get tickets at face value.
The Red Sox hold back monster seats (on the left field wall) and some right field deck seats until days before the games. If you call the ticket office EVERY day at 10AM, starting about a week before this game you might be able to get a set of those. Be aware that face value monster seats are $140 each.
They also make tickets available at the ticket window on the day of the game. These tickets are un-used player tickets. One never knows if these will be available or not, but last game of the season vs Minnesota I'd be willing to bet there will be.
Not a sure thing, but odds are the Red Sox will clinch the AL East before 9/30, also a good chance that the Twins will be out of the running - so there won't be as much fan interest in this game. Conclusion, you could probably get tickets from a scalper for a reasonable price. Scalpers hang out away from the main entrances to the ball park, mostly around the parking lots. Assuming the situation outlined above occurs, the scalpers won't be gouging for the tickets as bad.
Look at stubhub.com or acetickets.com to see what the ticket agency's are getting for these tickets. That will be your only sure fire way of getting tickets well in advance.
i want to take the t to fenway park and i'm coming from lincoln ri so how to i pick up the t?
Are you taking the T commuter rail train from RI (or perhaps from Attleborough, MA)? Or are you driving to Boston's outskirts?
If taking the T train from Providence or Attleborough: Get off at Back Bay. Walk 2 blocks to Copley Station (Green Line subway). Take any train EXCEPT the E train 2 stops outbound to Kenmore. Fenway Park is one long block away. (Actually you can save the subway fare and walk to Fenway
from Back Bay Station. It is a pleasant walk, about half an hour).
If driving to Boston's outskirts: Route 95 north to Grove Street (the first exit after Route 9). Riverside Green line terminal then only a few hundred feet away (follow T signs). Big parking lot. Take train
to Kenmore (NOT to Fenway Park Station - that is the station for the actual park with trees and grass, not for the ball park).
How difficult is it to get Red Sox V. Yankee tickets @ Fenway park?
The Red Sox have been selling out their season for a few years now. Tix are usually gone by December 2006 when they first go on sale ( 2008 tickets will go on sale December 2007). Your best bet is a ticket agency/scalper. Once in a while they will release a few seats the day of the game, or you can get in line for standing room only tickets the day of the game.
Hey ronald d. I've been to Fenway more times than you can imagine. Who the hell are you to tell me whether I've been there? It smells, it's old, the seats are too GD small. The rats own the bathrooms and the fans, like you are jerks. You got any other questions, knot head?
Like I said, it's a dump and they ought to knock it down.
What's the difference between a Wrigley field hotdog, and a Fenway Park hotdog?
Okay Jeffrey, I'm going to lay this down for you in the simplest of terms because to be honest, I think you are a moron. That team that you are claiming to be a fan of? Well as the real fans know, they themselves had a bit of a dry streak for awhile before they started winning all these championships and douchebags like you started jumping on the bandwagon. So that's why you don't usually see Red Sox fans slamming Cubs fans and vice versa. But you go on, have your fun, it's obvious that you get some kind of pleasure in it and far be it for me to try to rob you of that. But I'm sure the real Sox fans would appreciate you stop embarassing them
Does anyone know how much it costs to make a public shutout for someone in Fenway Park?
This is the best I can find. Found it on the The Sox's Website.

How do I get to Fenway Park, Boston from New York City, fastest way by train?
Get Amtrak from Penn Station in NYC to South Station in Boston, and then on the Boston T, get the Red Line 2 stops towards Alewife and switch to the Green Line, the D branch to Riverside, and that stops at Fenway.
While you're there, be sure to buy tickets for the last regular season series to see the Yankees sweep the Red Sux.
FENWAY PARK or WRIGLEY FIELD of these Two Old Time ball parks which do you Think is the better Ball Part?
I'll take the old one, Fenway. Alas, too many times have I been to Wrigley. I'll never go again. It is all that people say it is: drunks, drunk yuppies, and the few fans actually watching the game yelling things like, "Yay! We got a point!" There are good, traditional Cub fans, too, but they've been silenced by the Naperville crowd. Fenway, too, has a MUCH more interesting outfield. It's delightfully weird!
For heaven's sake, don't drive. I live in the Fenway neighborhood, and it's a total mess around game time. Better to park at one of the remote T stops and take the subway in. If you insist on bringing your car, park in Brookline, as Boston is residents-only. Parking lots near Fenway are $30 and up this season for games.
You want to take a Green Line B, C or D line subway to Kenmore. It's easy to tell which one is Kenmore, as the cars will be packed until that stop, and most people will get out.
Are Fenway Park and Wrigley Field the only MLB parks that sell obstructed view and standing room only seats?
Alot of teams sell standing room only, I know they have them at Busch Stadium. Im not sure about the obstructed view, but yeah that is awful they should not sell seats where you can not even view the game.
Why is the area around Fenway Park better than the area around Yankee Stadium?
The Sox ownership has really done a great job pushing the "family atmosphere" at the park. They have now included some of the surrounding streets to be inside the gate which includes a couple bars and some stores too . It helps keep out people causing trouble and they have more control over what goes on too. Its also helps to be in a MUCH better area too.
Can people bring cameras into the bruins game at fenway park?
Don't worry, the Legends game will be so slow you can bring a courtroom sketch artist instead and still capture all the action.
Enjoy the game, I wish I was going too. forecast right now, 50% chance precip, high of 34. we may be looking at a rain snow mix for both games.
How can I get tickets to Fenway Park if all the games are sold out already? What are some cheap alternatives?
Probably the easiest way is to go on ebay or stubhub.com. Those are probably the cheapest ways. Red Sox's games are always sold out. Over 300 consecutives games and counting. I got tickets for 1 game on June 2 against the Yankees, right behind the bullpen in right field.
What are the Asian words behind home plate at Fenway park?
Can some just answer the question and not try to be funny here. I see this annoying dude also. He is in the second row and holds up 2 yellow paddles with chinese or japanese symbols on it. He is at every game it seems and ONLY holds up the signs after the opposing player strikes out.
Where can we stay in Boston and get to Fenway Park easily?
The MBTA (Aka. The T) has a stop on the Green Line called KENMORE which is Kenmore Square and adjacent to Fenway Park. So you want to find a hotel nearby a "T" station. I've no idea where you're coming from, and there are plenty of hotels that would meet your criteria, so what I'd do is check out http://www.mbta.com for the most convenient end point, then start looking for hotels in that area. For example, using the search engine of your choice, search for ' MBTA STATION HOTEL' and then check the results and contact those that appeal to you. Remember that lines connect, so the hotel does not need to be along the Green Line.
Added 5/12 1257EDT - I believe the hotel to which Hank refers to is the Hotel Indigo, which is located on Grove St. in Newton (Exit 22 off I-95) just between I-95 and the Riverside Green Line Terminal. The entrance to the terminal is the next driveway on left after the hotel. Easily walkable.
Remember, you want to ride to the KENMORE stop!
The last car back to Riverside leaves Government Center at 12:45AM and takes (according to the "T") 11 minutes to get to KENMORE on it's way, so if you use this method, plan accordingly.
Where can I find good quality pictures of Fenway Park in Boston that I can use as a Desktop wallpaper?
For future reference, go to Google and click on images at the top. Then click on advanced image search. Type in your search in the top field and in the Size drop-down menu select Larger than 1024x768 or whatever size you want.
I need to construct a Gingerbread House of Fenway Park to enter in a contest?
I've got a fruitcake made by my ex-mother-in-law that you could use for the green monster. Interested?
***** added info *****
I can't believe no one else took a shot at this. It would probably be easiest to use heavy cardboard. And cardboard is a lot easier to work with than wood or metal.
What is the easiest way to get to Fenway park from Rhode Island?
I go this way all the time it's the best especially on a Sunday
95N to 93
ON 93 take exit 7 (you'll only be on 93 for about 5 miles this is the exit for Rt. 3 and the train station)
bear left on exit, then take the parking garage exit. This is Quincy Adams station - remember that and don't get off in Braintree or Quincy when you come back.
Take train, get off at Park St. station, switch to Green Line, get on any train except the Boston College train, get off at Kenmore Square and follow the crowd
Hope this helps....
What's the largest crowd ever to attend a game in Fenway Park?
The biggest baseball crowd at Fenway ever was 47,627 for a Yankees doubleheader on September 22, 1935.
Previous to that, 46,995 fans attended a Detroit Tigers doubleheader on August 19, 1934. One week earlier, on August 12, 1934, a crowd of 46,766 said goodbye to Babe Ruth at a Yankees doubleheader. (The Babe actually did not retire after the 1934 season, but played one more year with the Boston Braves.)
Those crowds will never be equaled under Fenway's current dimensions. After World War II, more stringent fire laws and league rules prohibited the overcrowding that was so common in the 1930s. The current capacity of Fenway Park is 36,108 for night games and 35,692 for day games.
