Opening Day 2017; Fenway Park

I had this one circled on the calendar for awhile once the 2017 schedule was announced last year and it was official that the Buccos would open the season at Fenway Park.

I thought about writing about the experience and what I did step by step and witnessed, but I’ve already done a Fenway Park review and figured it might be better to just go through all the pictures I was able to capture on that beautiful day.

The Red Sox beat the Pirates 5-3, but it was still an awesome time. Click here for my  quick series recap.
