New England Vacation #9
This is most likely a no-brainer for any baseball fan. This is, indeed, one of the icons of Boston: Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox. On the left-hand side of the photo you can see the famous Green Monster - the wall built to prevent balls from causing damage on the street outside the stadium and to keep onlookers from getting a free view of the game. In the background, above and behind the Green Monster, you can see Boston's famous Citgo sign that is illuminated quite brightly after dark. There is no game taking place in this photo; we were on a ballpark tour, and the individuals on the field are preparing it for the evening's game vs. the Tampa Bay Devil Rays. This tour was fantastic, and I definitely recommend it for anyone in the Boston area.
