The view from behind home plate at Hanover Insurance Park. The batter's eye is a small grove of trees, and the on-ramp for I-290.



The view from down the first base line at Fitton Field. Interstate 290 runs behind the left field fence and several home run balls have reached the highway. There's also a separate scoreboard just for the Red Sox score.


The view from down the third base line. Holy Cross's football stadium stands behind the right field fence.
