5. Visit the Green Monster

Standing at just over 37 feet tall and 240 feet wide, the left field wall is a staple of Fenway. Starting 20 minutes before gates open, for $19.95, Red Sox Nation members can go up on the Monster to watch batting practice during regular-season games. Planning to do so? Don’t forget your glove.

9. Sing along

A series of catchy tunes will be played throughout your time at the park. “Take Me Out to the Ball Game,” “Sweet Caroline” and hopefully “Dirty Water” (after a win) just to name a few. Be sure to enjoy yourself and the game by singing along.
