Fenway Park.


Anticipating a visit to Fenway Park this weekend, I reminisced about 1967 when three Wayland teenagers attending a July game invested $1.75 for game 161 on Sept. 30. Scalpers offered us $35 on game day. George Scott’s home run landed feet away in the centerfield bleachers. Game 162 made history.
