    She is going with a friend from Boston that is a Red Sox fan. I took them to Yankee Stadium in May and her friend wore her Red Sox jersey and hat and had no issues (a few comments on a food line at worst).

    Also, any other Fenway tips for me to give her? Best Food? Things to see at Fenway?

    we went last year in yankee wear with no problems. Didn't sit in the green monster but we did go up there before the game and no one said anything to us. Literally at fenway there are of course red sox memorabilia if you are a general baseball fan.

    Re: Visiting Other Ballparks

    Any opinions or suggestions for Nationals Park? Havenít visited an opposing stadium in a while and am considering driving down for one or both of the games. Parking, hotels, stuff to do in the area (besides visiting all the usual DC stuff which I am not interested in)

    Ace -

    I regularly drive down to Nationals Park for games. I can't recommend any hotels, but would suggest getting a place that is proximal to the Metro - although I usually park in one of the park garages, we also go to Greenbelt and take the Metro into the park.

    As for what to do in DC - the Smithsonian is always #1 on my list. Quite a collection. If you are into it, the Air & Space Museum out by Dulles is a must see.

    So, what does one do when all the hotels less than $500/night in Baltimore is booked? I was thinking of AirB&B but we want privacy.

    I don't know about Baltimore, but the one time I used AirB&B, my friend and I had a whole house (half of a duplex, but totally separate entrances) at our disposal. Much more private than a hotel. Search around a bit, and you might find something like that in the Baltimore area.

    There are a few reasons I'm trying to avoid AirBnB for this trip. And looking at what's left for private accomodations, anything that's cheaper than remaining hotel rooms is nowhere near the Inner Harbor and I'm not trying to run around Baltimore.

    TIL that you can sleep in AirBnB boats. Interesting.

    Thinking of taking a trip up to Toronto in July to catch Yanks Jays. Anyone have seat recommendations or anything cool I should check out at the stadium?

    Yes people like to visit other ballparks as referenced in the title to this thread. Niagara falls + a yankees game seems like a pretty good trip.

    I went 5 years ago and it was really pricey but if you can swing it get a hotel room with a view of the field at the connected hotel, the Marriott City Centre hotel. It is a once in a lifetime experience.

    Re: Visiting Other Ballparks

    For the Baltimore series in June I held out too long and couldn't get a nearby hotel for less than $500+/night. I needed up staying at the Holiday Inn Express on North Gay Street and regretted it because I paid a lot and the area sucked.

    So for the series in late August I said I wasn't going to book less than a month out otherwise I wasn't going to go. With plans to go to all four games, I booked a hotel for Friday and Saturday nights that was more expensive than I wanted and on the other side of the Inner Harbor (yet still cheaper per night than the last hotel.) Everything near the ballpark was once again sold out for Saturday night (but not Friday night.)

    I cant win: ESPN takes the Sunday game. There's no way I leave Baltimore at 11PM on Sunday and make it to work on time and presentable at 9AM on Monday. Had I known this when I booked the hotel, I would not have booked Saturday night.

    The last few weeks feels like the Yankees are in a barrel.
    If they ask who was our star, give them 25 names, and if you forget our names, just tell them we were Yankees.
