    I went to see the Orioles at my first trip to Fenway and they got creamed. Guess that's why I was spared.

    ^ I can vouch for that. I had a GREAT time at Fenway last fall. Even though I had Yankee gear on the whole time, everyone was very nice to me, both at Fenway and in the general Boston area - a guy even helped me when I got lost coming out of the science museum (the museum's T station was shut down so I couldn't find the shuttle bus I'd used to get there; the guy helped point the way to the next closest station).

    The only sore spot was the occasional catcall yelled from a passing car, but I shrugged that off. All in all I would say that Boston is very accommodating to Yankee fans (as is NYC to Redsox fans). I highly recommend it.

    Red Sox fans aren't much different from other teams' fans, at least in the northeast...if you just go to root for your team and aren't obnoxious about it, you shouldn't have any problem. You may get some good-natured heckling but I doubt people will really be unpleasant. There's always a jerk or two, but you should be fine.

    That's encouraging.

    Finally got a chance to make a trip to Fenway! I'll be going there this August for three games (vs. my Yankees of course)...will try not to be TOO nervous.

    Like I just said in the Yankee Stadium II thread: I will cheer for my team - but otherwise keep my mouth shut, my head down, and my hands to myself. And will wear only NON-offensive gear, such as a Yanks cap and player T-shirts.

    And I love the food at the Cask & Flagon, so I hope they serve Yankee fans! (I was not wearing Yankee gear when I was there before.)

    Here is a link to some posts I wrote about Fenway in my blog. Covers taking the T to the game, parking at the Pru Center, and a site to go to to avoid obstructed view seats. Hope you all enjoy it.

So I can see and check out and enjoy the ballpark, without having to deal the redsox/yankees stuff. (don't get me wrong I also want to go to a redsox yankees game at fenway too) I just want to see one of oldest and most unique ballparks in peace!
    Really? Is it that bad?

    I have always wanted to see a Sox/Yankees game at Fenway. But I am a Yankee fan and I wonder, is it safe? I know this is the Red Sox forum and you all hate the Yankees and their fans, but I guess I gotta ask anyway. I mean, I wouldn't be getting wasted or starting fights or antagonizing Sox fans or anything like that. All I want to do is clap and cheer for my team, perhaps wearing the occasional Yankee shirt or jacket (which I really don't want getting ruined by having food or beer dumped all over it). Surely that's not a big deal? I can deal with things like the "Yankees Suck" cheer, but that's it...I'd definitely never be looking for a confrontation or a fight. I respect Sox fans and would never antagonize them in their own ballpark.

    (I *have* been to Fenway before, but never when the Yankees were in town.)

    lol. You could by scalped tickets from Stub Hub, or look on Craigslist under tickets. Alot of people advertise one there. Alot of clowns that want to sell the tickets for more, but it's easy to talk them down.

    YEASSSSS!!!

    I come to Boston. For the 29th and 30th August. Watching my beloved Sox against Toronto. Hopefully. Because I got no tickets so far.

    On www.redsox.com they sell, but I can't get two tickets side-by-side...What is the best way to get ticket for those games?

    Any suggestions?

    Hey fellow Sox fans, I'm going to next friday's game of the Braves and Sox at Fenway. I haven't been to a game since game 1 of the 2007 ALDS against the Angels (awesome game: CG by Beckett, HRs by Youk and Papi) so I'm quite excited. I'm disappointed that I won't get to see Smoltz get the start (he was adamant about his first game back to NOT be against his former team) but I'm psyched none the less. I'm guessing it'll be Lester or Wake. I'm not too sure. A move is destined to happen this coming week so we'll see...

    We drove into Kenmore Square yesterday so my wife could see her old haunts when she went to BU. There was not a lot of traffic so we ended up parking in the Ipswich St. Garage behind the ballpark. Took the Green Line to the Union Oyster House for seafood. We had to ask five passerbys for directions to the restaurant before somebody knew where it was. We were only one block away from it.

    After the ballgame ended, we waited for our car to be brought to us and then drove for a half an hour before finding an inexpensive motor inn outside of Boston. We both commented at how helpful the people of Boston were to us all day long.

    When I visited in Aug.'04, I chose a furnished apartment for the week on W. Newton near Huntington a couple of blocks from Prudential Center/Mall. For the games at Fenway, I walked through the fountain area of the Christian Science Church to Mass Ave to Boylston and over into the Fens. I entered the ballpark area at that Shell station. Walking is the way to go.

    Take the green line to the Hynes station and visit McGreevy's Third Base Saloon and the priceless vintage Red Sox memorabilia covering the walls!

    Depends upon which way you're coming from...outbound, use Kenmore, inbound, use Fenway.
