Fenway offers views of the Sox and the Boston Marathon
Each Patriots Day, the left field corner of Fenway Park offers an unparalleled perspective. It is the only place in Boston where spectators can simultaneously watch the marathon and the Red Sox game. The spot marks the point where two incongruous sporting events converge during the springtime ritual known as Marathon Monday. “It’s a Boston holiday,’’ said Brian Gannon, who has been coming to Patriots Day games for a decade and watches from the standing-room seats above left field so he can catch glimpses of the race.
