How would you rate the cost of food and beverages at the ballpark?
What is the must-have food item offered at the ballpark and what makes it so good?
"Fenway Franks. Don't worry, they're not made from the Fenway Friends (rats) that live behind the Green Monster."
"Kettle corn. Five bucks for a large bag. Best deal in the park."
"El Tiante's Cuban sandwich just outside the park. Luis Tiant is often there overlooking the operation and greeting customers."
"RemDogs. Probably the best hot dogs anywhere. They're all beef, I believe, and have a distinct taste that you can't get anywhere else. And they're really really big, too, so once you've waited 45 minutes to get it, you're happy for the whole game."
How would you rate the hospitality offered to fans of the opposing team?
What is the worst incident you've witnessed against an opposing fan or yourself?
"My 77-year-old mother got beer spilled on her by a drunk fan -- but he sobered up fast and apologized profusely."
"It's Fenway Park, There's usually heckling of other fans, especially people stupid enough to wear Yankees gear. One kid got punched and had his Yankees hat burned."
"A middle class family of four having to drop a week's salary to go to the game."
"Can't repeat what happens when someone wears their Yankees gear to Fenway."
"I saw a visiting fan walking down a row in Section 3 one time and he was so thrilled with his first time at Fenway until he sat down and was directly behind one of the green steel support beams. He couldn't see a thing -- I thought he was gonna cry! Gotta know those old parks!"
"Haven't personally seen an incident. Fenway is good about escorting rowdy/drunk fans OUT of the ballpark. I think the fans are much nicer to a visiting team's fans than they are to a visiting team's players. Not so nice to the players, especially the Yankees. I would assume that some Yankees fans probably are given a lot of grief as well. But at least you don't take your life in your hands going to Fenway dressed in the opponent's paraphernalia, which is not true of Yankee Stadium. That's downright dangerous."
How would you rate the quality of the promotions/giveaways offered by the home team?
What is the best promotion/giveaway your team has offered? What is the worst? What is a promotion you'd like to see?
"Best promo would be: Take a cut against Dice-K."
"Great promo idea: An evening with Clay Buchholz's Penthouse Pet girlfriend"
"My first game was on Free Derek Lowe Poster Night. He was still a closer at the time, got the call in the ninth and he blew the game right away. Everybody ripped up the posters and threw them as he got booed off the field. "
"Win a trip to Mars with Manny Ramirez. "
"Win Coco Crisp Night was the best. "
"In my 25 years of attending games at Fenway, I've never received any giveaway."
