I get Red Sox tickets every year; until recently, I bought exclusively in the bleachers. Why bother with Fenway’s right field grandstands when the bleachers offer a much better perspective, and who wants to spend $55 (minimum) for a 3-year old to sit in the infield grandstand when he will watch just as much of the game (none) from 450 feet away?
But now my son is nearly 8 and, with a second year of little league under his belt, he gets the basics. He can follow games and keep the book from center field, but frankly it’s easier for him if he’s in the infield. Still, we're not going to fork out $200 plus all the fees for 2 seats in the loge box, which means we’re in the grandstand. As we've all heard, Fenway is America’s most beloved ballpark, and by extension, the infield grandstand at Fenway is America’s most beloved infield grandstand, so it can’t be all that bad. So far this year, we’ve had infield grandstand tickets to two Sunday games, and as a result have gotten really awesome views of historic Fenway Park's architecture.
