I recently had the opportunity to take in a Boston Red Sox game up on the famous Green Monster at Fenway Park.
I was treated to these great seats by former Red Sox pitcher Jim Corsi who happens to be one of my best friends and past client as well. I have done five real estate transaction with Jim over the last six years.
Jim is a Newton MA native and played in the major leagues for ten years. Jim played professional baseball for nineteen years including the minor leagues. Jim played for the Boston Red Sox, Oakland A'S, Florida Marlins, and a short stint with the Baltimore Orioles to end his career.
One of Jim's best years happened to be while playing for my beloved Red Sox in 1998. He also had productive years with the Oakland A'S. He pitched in the post season for both the Red Sox and Oakland A's.
Aside from the fact that I got to sit in these great monster seats, I had the opportunity to meet some most interesting "characters". I was able to meet Hall of Famer Dennis Eckersley, Red Sox legend Luis Tiant a.k.a El Tiant, The "Spaceman" Bill Lee, Red Sox announcer and former player Jerry Remy and veteran Boston TV sportscaster Bob Lobel.
Now that I think of it I also got re-introduced to Former Boston College and NFL Star Doug Flutie of Natick MA. I had met Doug years earlier while playing some pick up basketball in Natick MA.
It was an unbelievable night getting to meet all these guys. It is a night I will never forget.
If you are a baseball fan, watching a game at Fenway Park in Boston is like nothing else. This is an attraction you surely would not want to miss if you are visiting Boston.
