Red Sox willing to squeeze fielders for new seats | Boston Herald

Now that teams are screening a larger portion of stadiums, it makes perfect sense to add more premium seats closer to the action.

Patrons with seats in the current first two rows between the dugouts will retain their claim to premium Dugout Box seats in the two new rows. Seventy-eight such seats will be added between the dugouts at a price of $225 each per game, generating $1.4 million in additional revenue per year.

Fourteen new first-row Dugout Box seats will be added adjacent to the visitors’ dugout on the third base side and 32 more seats will be added on the right field side of the Red Sox dugout. Prices will vary, but at an average of $380 each per game, those seats will generate another $1.4 million per season for the team.

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.’’
