After visiting every major league baseball stadium over the last 15 years and despite being a lifelong Houston fan, the Boston Red Sox just feel like a wonderfully historic franchise. For those who have yet to make the pilgrimage to Boston's Fenway Park, it is an experience like no other. The entire neighborhood around Fenway is full of Red Sox lore.
Boston Beer Works has been serving customers their famous Blueberry Beer. The beverage is unique in that the blueberries ride the bubbles up and down in a most mesmerizing manner. All along the walls are images of Red Sox players all the way back to 1916. The connection that Boston inhabitants have with their beloved Red Sox is passionate and wonderfully loyal.
No other fans in baseball are as knowledgeable as Red Sox Nation. I have sat in Fenway Park over the years, and without a doubt the fans in Boston are as passionate and opinionated as any of the fans in the entire game.
So rather than the usual Red Sox historical lore, I reach deep into the depths of baseball treasure troves everywhere and come up with interesting facts that even many in Red Sox nation don't know! If you have an unusual fact or personal experience regarding Red Sox Nation, please do share in the comments below.
