It was the first time the park allowed filming during an actual game, including scenes of the “Sweet Caroline” sing-along (a tradition that started in 1998).
Jimmy Fallon recalled one of his favorite moments at Fenway: “We did a scene where Drew [Barrymore] has to run across the field into my arms at home plate. It was after the game and we asked everyone to stay if they want to and everyone stayed. It’s like 35,000 people here. I could not believe everyone stayed, and people were just cheering. It was so emotional and so good. I’ll never forget it. It’s such a great memory.”
