Boston Red Sox Photography: Opening Day 2012.

“Fighter jets fly over Fenway Park during the pre-game ceremonies on Opening Day in Boston, Massachusetts Friday, April 13, 2012.”

“Former Boston Red Sox catcher Jason Varitek and former pitcher Tim Wakefield salute the crowd before throwing out the ceremonial first pitch at Fenway Park on Opening Day Friday, April 13, 2012.”

Opening Day at Fenway Park: A moment I’ve long been waiting for, and it fulfilled my every expectation. The energy throughout the stadium was booming, and we couldn’t have asked for a nicer day to begin the season in Boston.

What’s more, the Red Sox opened up this homestand with a solid win.Β 

As I did after each game I shot last season, I’ll continue to post one “Thing I Learned” from each game I document this year. This game’s “Thing I Learned”: Navigating through Fenway Park when it’s full of people is incredibly inconvenient. I found myself a bit frustrated after two innings of fighting my way through throngs of drunken fans. Such is the nature of the ballpark, though, and I’ve quickly learned to embrace it!

More to come soon!

  1. So happy you got to be there! Those are some great pics I love Fenway and my Red Sox! We have tickets to go in June and we’re counting down the days. Opening day has to be something special, though.

    1. I agree — when I first heard the story of the Pesky Post, it cracked me up! Nice to have a face to go along with the story. πŸ™‚

  2. Great pics. I’m going to Fenway this weekend (first time ever — I’m traveling to Boston on business) and I can’t wait. I’m taking the camera for sure…

  3. I had many wonderful times at Fenway Park! I have not been since getting married and moving away. I hope some day soon to bring my children there! I am a TRUE Red Sox fan since I was a child! Grew up with them! Thanks for sharing the pics!

  4. Very nice, season off to a questionable start, but hey , Boston just seems to start slow. It was the way they ended last season that upset me. It was nice to see them take care of business against their “other” nemesis team, Tampa Bay.

  5. If you happen to go back to Fenway for the day game vs the Rangers on August 6th, I will be one of the many drunken fans, hopefully not getting in your way, though! We’re proud members of Red Sox Nation even though we live in Houston and make the trek to Fenway every summer. My 12-yr-old son thinks it’s normal to see the Sox play at home every year but I remind him that a trip to Fenway remains a dream for many grownups! Gorgeous photos, esp the one of Tek. I’m sad he’s not on the roster anymore; such a great role model.

  6. I guess that means Bobby has to lie to the press if they ask his opinion. All he did was tell what he thought, just gave his opinion. Can’t do that? Got to keep it all inside?

  7. Adrian Gonzalez: Espero que luzcas este aΓ±o como tu sabes hacerlo. Felicidades

  8. Great post, and congratulations on your “fresh-pressed” accomplishment! That isn’t likely to happen for me, as I post video guitar licks/solos and songs with tablature. Once again, congrats!
