But before we hit the road, Game 1. The Kansas City Royals at Boston. Fenway is, without a doubt, the most interesting ballpark still in use. It’s old and traditional and quirky, yes, but its charm is almost overwhelming. It feels tiny, especially with the Green Monster in left field and just 310 feet between home plate and the wall along the left foul line, a mere 302 feet down the right-field line to The Pesky Pole. Fenway has been reconfigured many times over the years, moving bullpens and tweaking the seating, but the essence of the old park remains, from the occasionally cramped and sightline-impaired seating to the ground-level midway that feels even more crowded by its tight dimensions. If you grew up going to one of the newer mega-stadiums, Fenway will feel like watching at your high-school field, only sharing it with 37,000 other rabid fans.
