I had the privilege of catching the second game of last year's "Futures at Fenway" double-header. If you're wondering, it was a privilege because 1) as a Red Sox fan, any game at Fenway, even the Pawsox, is a pleasure* and 2) most importantly, tickets and certain designated concession item were discounted from their usual outrageous rates.
Also, this game took place in August, well before my Red Sox had their historic choke job.
