The Wives Have It

It included a floral arranging class, a wine reception, a silent auction, a live auction and a luncheon. Proceeds totaled $200,000 and will benefit ALS patients, caregivers and research in Massachusetts.


The Self-Proclaimed 'America's Most Beloved Ballpark'
Finishes No. 28 Out of 30 in SI's Fan Value Index

"Let's get this straight. Fenway is impossible to drive to, the seats are uncomfortable and/or obstructed and it costs a kidney -- or two -- to get in and eat. What, exactly, is the draw? Ah, yes, the history, the passion, the atmosphere of Fenway. But is that really worth more at Fenway than at any other park in the league? To the fans of Boston, who continually pack the place, it must be. And, truth be told, every student of the game should see the place at least once in his or her life. But to wring every last dollar from one of the majors' most loyal fan bases is not merely hard-nosed business, it borders on the unethical." -- Sports Illustrated Fan Value Index, The skinny on Fenway
