I remember going to Fenway Park during my college days in the mid-70s (I’m one of a very small group that it’s OK for the Bosox to win if the Bombers don’t) and paying a buck or two for a bleacher “bench seat”, once inside the park for an additional $1 we could move closer to the right field foul line, near “Peskey’s Pole” for you baseball fans and a slightly better “actual seat”. Times have changed.
