The World Series.
At Fenway Park.
Are you kidding me?
Of course, we’ve played there a few times in the past, so I’ve done the whole tour of the historic park. I’ve been inside the Green Monster, where so many players have been and signed their names on the wall. That was the first time, years back. Larry Walker and I went out there and did it.
It’s a wonderful ballpark, wonderful atmosphere. It’ll be unbelievable. I’ll be excited about that.
A lot of players might take along a video camera and record the whole experience. That’s wonderful. But I won’t do that. This mind of mine is a steel trap, especially with something like this. I’ll never forget any of this.
Now, to the game on the field.
Fenway Park is a unique place. You hear a lot of things about the infield being rough, but I didn’t notice anything like that between home plate and first base. But I’ll have to take a look-see when we get there.
As a hitter, especially a left-handed hitter, the ballpark plays a lot bigger than you think. It does have the short porch around Pesky’s Pole down the right-field line, but then it gets really big, really quick.
To all the fans of the Rockies, thanks for all your support. It really makes a difference to us.
See you Saturday!
