I was at the game last week between the Rays and The Sox at Fenway on September 10th. The whole experience was great. Along with the the President of Sports management worldwide, my father and a few other guests we were allowed to go down onto the field and watch batting practice. Fenway is an historical landmark and may never be torn down in place of a mammoth money making coliseum. There is a certain feel to the park that no other has except for Wrigley field in Chicago.
What I noticed the most during my on field experience was the Japanese press. There were at least 5 newspapers waiting for the arrival of Akinori Iwamura. It was fun speaking Japanese with them. They were all in shock because our contingent showed up wearing Seibu Lions Hats in honor of Daisuke Matsuzaka.
That was my second year in Brooklyn.

Dad: Hey Mr. Zimmer . I was here in 1956 and saw Ted Williams hit a homer. Mr. Zimmer: That was my second year in Brooklyn.

But the biggest thrill was seeing Don Zimmer the current coach of The Rays. Doesn’t he look great?
