Pain in the Glass

Pain in the Glass Gone
.406 Club is a Smash Hit

A pane of glass is shattered by a concrete baseball thrown by Dave Hixson from Hudson,on the tempered glass enclosure that  encloses the elevated Fenway Park .406 Club, as Red Sox President/CEO Larry Lucchino looks on. Hixson, an EMC employee was chosen for the honor, as he fired a pitch into the windshield-like glass, as it shattered. The glass will be coming down as the .406 Club will be converted into anew, open-air seating area called the EMC Club. The .406 Club is named after Red Sox legend, Ted Williams, and his batting average. The new EMC Club will be at the suite level, and will have exactly 406 seats.

"What a missed opportunity -- they sold the "Championship Sod," you would think they could get a pretty penny from Red Sox Nation for those panes of glass! Someone's asleep at the wheel. -- 10.14, Dawn Orvis, RSN Connecticut
