Where are the Best Seats (and the Worst Seats) at Fenway Park?
Fenway Park is one of the smallest Major League Baseball ballparks, known for giving fans an intimate up-close experience with the action on the field. Unless you're in the Upper Bleachers or Standing Room Only sections, you'll have decent-to-great views.
Want to splurge? Go for seats in Field Boxes 20 through 77, or just behind them, Loge Box seats in sections 107 through 155.
What are Green Monster Seats?
What a spectacular view from high above the left field? Choose a Green Monster seat atop Fenway Park's famous 37-foot high left field walk called the "Green Monster" because of its color. But be warned: the seats are not cheap!
But ... to score a relative bargain, get a Green Monster Standing Room Only ticket. Located just behind the Green Monster seats, the view is almost identical but tickets typically cost much, much less.

What is the "Curse of the Bambino"?
For 86 very long years - almost a century - between 1918 and 2004, the Red Sox won NO World Series championships. This long dry spell began right after the Sox sold their star pitcher Babe Ruth, a.k.a. "The Bambino," to the New York Yankees in 1920.
Although the Yankees had never won a championship up to that time, they began a winning streak that racked up 26 World Series titles in the 84 years after the sale.
After the Boston Globe sports writer Dan Shaughnessy published The Curse of the Bambino in 1990 (still a fun read - you can get it from Amazon (#ad)), "Reverse the Curse" became the battle cry for Red Sox Nation - and a lasting part of Red Sox team lore.
