Baseball Road Trip of a Lifetime: Boston

So here's the thing about Fenway Park...you never knew how badly you wanted to go there until you've been there and want to go back. Simply put...the thing is a treasure and there are so many things to soak up that it takes more than one visit to appreciate it all.

All that aside, I've been there only once and feel I got cheated out of exploring the entire park because of some showers in Beantown throughout the day.

Matter of fact, we weren't sure if the game was going to be played or not.

This past week, Navin Vaswani made his second sojourn to Fenway and had the honor of seeing good friend of The Hall CJ Wilson and his Rangers square off against the Sox.

Fenway Park in Boston remains as I left her: one of the Meccas of baseball; a special place to watch a game. If you can only make it to a handful of ballparks in your lifetime, Fenway should be on your list. New, state-of-the-art stadiums are all the rage, and I'm enjoying them so far on my trip, but there's something to be said for history. For nostalgia. As much as I'm not a fan of the Red Sox, and as much as I complain about the park's short porches in left and right field, baseball needs Fenway Park to endure.


And she will.
And that's a good thing.
