If you watch the Red Sox on NESN with any regularity, you know this man. His name is Dennis Drinkwater, and he has the best seat in Fenway Park for every game. Full Story

Only in Hartford during the height of the World Series would someone pen an article on who is sitting behind home plate in Fenway Park and how much did it cost. You people are so lame.

I live in Tacoma WA., and consider myself a proud member of Red Sox Nation. So of course I have seen the blond guy in the red (or white) sweater behind home plate and wanted to find out who this super fan is. I emailed my cousin in Connecticut to see if he could do some sleuthing for me and he sent me your article. Now I can watch in peace knowing who Mr. Drinkwater is. What an awesome place to watch the best team on earth (except when they play the Mariners!)

Don't be a hater. What is your team that has such a rabid fan base? Does it also have 300 straight sellouts? Oh I guess that's "fiction". Jealous loser, Red Sox Nation lives!

With all else that is going on in the world, I for one am thankful we have some things to cheer for!

Nice story. I wondered who that guy was, and figured he must have been a minority owner, or an agent. We kid that he was a younger Robert Redford because he always has that bemused look Redford had in The Natural. Like the majority of those in the expensive seats around him, he never shows much emotion, never cheers. The ultimate corporate fan. He and Stephen King ought to swop their ducats with a random fan every now and then and go sit in the first row of the bleachers. Now, those are some great seats!

My family ( Ed and Maijayne Glastonbury , Barry and Janet Chicago, and Kathy and Scott Westport) check out the guy who looks like Walter Mathieu.He's right behind the catcher. He's dressed in a suit for all the games so we figured he came from work. But on Saturday he dressed down thus getting the name "Leisure Man!!!". Who is he?
