Can you believe it? I did it. I was on the Fenway field and touched The Wall. No kidding. I posted this to my Facebook status and my friend from Japan, Hiroshi says “Wow! Was the grass like sponge?” referencing Fever Pitch.
MLB.com reports that there were 53,000 people there. Wow.
The team is horrible right now, but I am always in the camp of if you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all…
I been tweeting nonsense since May 19, 2007 (over 4 years, can you believe that?). I put weekly digests of my tweets on my blog, so that I can search for it quicker using my blog’s search function. I tweet awfully a lot about baseball (I am a Red Sox fan), but if you are interested, please follow me at @DaigoFuji. Here are my tweets:
- I touched The Wall! http://t.co/p2Rqno6f 14:23:58, 2012-04-19

- So #RedSox have lost to the Rangers 8 of last 10 games at Fenway. Last place in AL East w/4-8 record. 22:15:27, 2012-04-18
- What is up with #RedSox bullpen? C'mon. 21:37:18, 2012-04-18

- @leslivingstone Hi, I don't think there is enough interest. Typical Americans probably won't pay money to go see Japanese teams play here. in reply to leslivingstone 22:38:16, 2012-04-15
- So, when do #RedSox hold emotional retirement ceremony for J.D. Drew? Oh wait, he is not retired yet? Maybe they could use him? (joking) 22:17:04, 2012-04-15
- YES! #RedSox win two in a row! Something that we couldn't say since Aug. 27, 2011. Many more to come. 19:29:39, 2012-04-14
- One thing that is a good news is that this #RedSox can score runs when they are down. That makes this an exciting team to watch. 18:40:27, 2012-04-14
- 3 home run in this game (Saltalamacchia, Pedroia & Ortiz). Before today in 7 games #RedSox had just 2 HRs. 18:12:37, 2012-04-14
- Tie Game! Big Papi! 18:07:17, 2012-04-14
