Fenway Park Newsbeat

Tuesday, September 27, 2016

Scoreboard operator tells the inside stories of Fenway’s Wall

“Legend has it that Manny came in and went to the bathroom,” he says. “He did come in, but he wasn’t going to the bathroom. There isn’t a bathroom back there; there hasn’t been one since I started.”

Ramirez came in many times, says Elias.

“We’d talk everything except baseball,” he says. “Even if he hit a home run the inning before. He’d ask about my kids, we’d talk family, he loved cars, and he was very nice to us. We had a lot of laughs. Sometimes we’d give him fruit. He’d have a little snack.’’
