Everyone knows how intense Fenway can get. McCoy Stadium is the opposite of Fenway in that regard. It is a great place to go and watch baseball in a more relaxed environment. You can get in for a very reasonable price and you won't really see people start yelling about the team's rival or at the fans of the team's rival (actions which do have a time and a place, but the time and place are just not McCoy Stadium). The inexpensive prices make this a GREAT idea for a family outing, especially if you have a couple or more young children, or if the family's enthusiasm about the game doesn't warrent the crazy price of a Fenway ticket. Given all that, nothing compares to Fenway, but this is an alternative!
