    "The ladder to nowhere

    For a long time there's been a story going around that Fenway Park is the home of baseball's only "ground-rule triple," but that's apparently some sort of urban legend. Fenway's Green Monster is the home of baseball's only in-play ladder, which extends from the upper-left corner of the old scoreboard to the top of The Wall.

    Interestingly, that ladder is now superfluous. For decades, it was used by the grounds crew to access the net atop The Wall that prevented most home runs from landing on Lansdowne Street. But with the construction of the Monster Seats last year, the net is gone and so's the need for a ladder. It's still there, but probably not for long. In the meantime, though, here's a rule about the ladder: "A ball striking the top of the scoreboard in left field in the ladder below the top of the wall and bounding out of the park is two bases."

    Has that ever happened? The record is silent."

    Agreed. Thomas is actually having a great game despite his earlier brain fart.

    Bruins better net one soon, they are being pushed around.

    [QUOTE=32green;3428913]Fenway looks beautiful, man. How cool is that?

    Get to fenway if possible. Take your children , it's fun. Great city for a weekend.

    I have been to Fenway 3 times. This summer I went, GREAT environment. I wore a Yankee hat and got harrassed but had a GREAT time. Some chowd bought me a beer on Yawkee way..... they don't suck the way PAT* fans do.

    I am watching the game on TV right now.

    I posted earlier in the thread on it, I found a link pretty much saying it's an urban legend. The announcer was incorrect apparently.

    Awesome!!!! A TRUE Yankee fan. You should wear a shirt to Yankee stadium saying you were thrown out of Fenway.

    If I saw you in that shirt, I would buy you a beer!!!

    Happy New Year!

    Lol, look at Tyler making funnies!:D

    Honestly, I would love to see a game there, but I cant see it matching the ambiance of Fenway at all.
