    Default Doing it, finally (Boston and New York trip)

    So I just settled on tickets for the 8/14 game at Fenway vs. Texas and the 8/15 game at Yankee Stadium vs. KC.

    Woot.

    Anyone give me any tips about Bean Town or The Bronx? Where to eat, what to see before the stadiums open, etc?

    I thought this was going to be an announcement that WN was going to start service to JFK and Logan, until I saw it was in the baseball forum.

    try to get into the fenway tour...you get to go on top of the monster and onto the field. They do it in the mornings of gamedays.

    There are a number of bars around Fenway: Game On, the Cask N' Flagon, etc. The atmosphere around the park is quite festive on game days -- you'll enjoy yourself there.

    Where will you end up sitting?







    BTW....if you see Dave Magadan, tell him he's a clown.

    Get ready for very tiny seats in Yankee Stadium. I'm 6'2" and I remember being really cramped.

    Oddly enough, the only time I ever went (I think it was in late summer of '02) they were playing KC as well.

    Yeah. This is a must for me. Shouldn't be a problem getting tickets, as they aren't sold in advance...just day-of on first-come-first-served basis only.

    They do tours differently at Yankee Stadium, selling tickets in advance through TicketBastard. Of course, all those tour tickets are sold out since this is the final season in that ballpark. Some are available on eBay for 100x face value, but **** that noise. I'll just go to a game there.

    The primary idea behind this trip is to get out to see Yankee Stadium. But I've got enough time off that week to go to both, and the schedules just worked out well. Also, I'm going to try and build up a collection of major league ballpark panoramic photographs similar to the one I have for sale of Dodger Stadium. In fact, I already have about a dozen sales lined up for 20x30s of both Fenway and Yankee stadium. So I've gotta do it. I just hope I can get the pics to turn out as well as the Dodger Stadium image did.

    I imagine I'll spend all of an inning or two in my seat. Other than that, I'll be walking around the ballpark taking pictures.

    When in Boston, pronounce your "A's" as "ahhhhhhh" and you will fit in just fine. I kinda remember a cool sports bar across the street from the homeplate entrance. Bars are everywhere near the stadium. If you have a car, park far away and ride the rail in. There is a stip right near Fenway. Same with Yankee stadium. Take the subway to the Bronx and don't go anywhere but the stadium from the subway stop. Look across the tracks. It looks like a 3rd World country.

    Chiming in with AB there are a ton of bars around Fenway and I went while on a business trip with a co-worker. We were pretty much in the bag by the end of the game so going into one of the bars (which strangely enough reminded me of the Westwood bars while at UCLA!) was a natural.

    A couple of things I appreciated about Fenway. Be careful if you are buying seats from a scalper. Remember they have added onto Fenway many, many times and row 1 seats are not that any longer. Secondly they have a ton of vendor's hawking stuff before the game out on the streets in front of the stadium. Buy your peanuts here (roasted as they are being sold for a buck a bag). It is all about the atmosphere with Fenway.

    I have never been to Yankee Stadium so I am a bit jealous. It was always a personal goal to get there before they closed it but sadly I won't be able to. Enjoy it and take lots of photos!
