As part of the celebration of 100 Years of Fenway, the Red Sox opened up the park yesterday to fans all day long.  It was open from 9am to 7pm.  You could walk around the warning track, peek into the Green Monster, get signatures from current and former players, go up into the press box and go down by the clubhouse and out to the field through the tunnel to the Sox dugout. 

I got the Fenway about 2pm.  There were TONS of people there.  It basically was full like it was a game day.  Everything had a line that went on for days, but for a free event to be able to walk around Fenway...I was in heaven.  When they brought us by the clubhouse door, someone opened it up and I was able to quickly take a peek.  All I could see was Kelly Shoppach's locker.  Still.  I got to peek in.  Then seeing the Sox batting cages and out to the dugout.   I didn't end up waiting in the huge line to see the players that were signing, but I know people were there all day long. 

All in all, it was a great day.  I love that the Sox do some really nice and fan friendly events such as this.  We are able to experience the park in a way that I am not sure the fans of other teams are able to do. 

Here are a few photos from the day afte the jump:
