Since I live in Kenmore Square, I usually try to avoid Fenway on game days. Too crowded, too noisy, and too much FOMO–baseball tickets are expensive.
Yesterday, though, the Red Sox were facing the Pittsburgh Pirates in their second game of the season, and I had an assignment. I pushed through the throngs, along with my project partner Olivia Gehrke, to find out what people love about Red Sox games.
Spoiler alert: Nobody said baseball. Enjoy the (goofy) video.
Olivia Gehrke assisted in filming.
And just so you know, the Red Sox won the game after 12 innings, despite my interviewees’ unenthusiasm. They beat the Pirates on opening day, too, so the Sox–newly sans their famous slugger David Ortiz–start the season off with a couple victories.
The final game of the series against the Pirates was scheduled for today but ended up postponed due to rain. The game has been rescheduled to Thursday, April 13.
