    Open House at Fenway Park April 19th

    From the Red Sox Insider:

    Now that Opening Day is less than a day away, the office has been abuzz as a bunch of folks are running around planning a big celebratory event for our fans. There hasn't been a lot leaked out to the media yet -- and our own webpage is still in the works -- but I was in a planning meeting for it about an hour ago so I figure I'll give you all the heads-up before everyone else. Basically, on April 19 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. there's going to be an Open House at Fenway Park - completely FREE to the public. There will be games for kids, autograph signings, and you'll be able to walk along the warning track and peek inside the Green Monster. All for free as a thanks to our fans and to celebrate Fenway Park's 100th Birthday (a day early). Good stuff, right?

    Gee, that's nice.  It's nice that they've decided to actually let the fans have somewhat a tour of Fenway instead of the joke they're now selling as a "tour". 

    I took this pseudo-tour on a non-game day a couple of years ago and for my $$ they guided me first to the Pavilion seats (where I can buy a game ticket for the right amount of money).  From there we were escorted to the Budweiser restaurant deck (yep, I can buy a ticket to sit there too!), then on to the top of the Green Monster (Tickets available!) and finally to the left field Louge Boxes where one can also sit in exchange for ~$100.  They then thanked us and sent us back onto the street.  It felt like a promotional tour, to let people get a feel for where they can purchase seats.

    It was a far cry from what I was expecting as a "tour of Fenway".  I was expecting to be allowed on the dirt portion of the field, probably being led through the dugout, out to look at the Bull Pen, stand in the CF corner for a moment, maybe take a peek inside the scoreboard, then be escorted back to Home Plate.  I didn't expect to see the locker rooms or the player areas but for the Sox organization to be charging money to guide people into areas where they can later buy seats felt like a rip-off.

    Last season on Father's day they let people walk on the warning track after the game was over. I was there and enjoyed it thoroughly. How many fans got to see any part of the park prior to the current ownership group taking over?

    True enough, but it's better than what they're charging for now.

        You know Pike,some of us who have actually had an intimate relationship with a woman have kids and/or grandkids.It would probably be a fun day to bring them out to Fenway to let them experience what it's like to be on the same field their heros play baseball on.As well as just spending some quality time with them.I just wanted to point this out to you because,what a kid might enjoy never crossed your mind. 
        You should get together with Bellhorn,Lowelll,Ladylake.Melnick and the rest of the gang to go there.It would do you some good.Maybe you could have some beers and put them on PawsoxPhil's tab.

    I heard they are going to have open house for the whole month of October since it won't interfere with any baseball games......

    Love your astute perception because the minute that I read the posts from S5 and Bellhorn, I was convinced that it was Pike once again. When will that guy ever learn that we are all onto him and his act. It is a given that Pike hates motherhood, children, apple pie, and Chevrolet. Keep your eye out as I'm convinced that he will try to sneak into the forum door with another moniker that is trying in vain to rid the forum of those fake trolls and pessimists.

    LOL
    Is being accused of being this "Pike" guy a rite of passage here?  Because if so, I'm apparently "in" now.  :-))

    Let me assure you that I AM NOT PIKE or any of his alleged aliases.  I have far too much to do with my time than to make up other names to post here with, and frankly I don't understand those who do that.  I have 850+ posts, most positive, a few negative, and some just observations, but they're all MINE.
      
    Jeez.
