Game #19: Blue Jays at Red Sox pregame

I’m back. After a few days off, enjoying the beautiful weather in Toronto, I’m now doing the same from Fenway Park in Boston. I took advatage of the sunshine and made the 20-25 minutes trek from my hotel to the ballpark and soaked up every second of it. Tomorrow I may go for a jog along the Charles River if the weather brings more of the same. Now, about getting those Toronto bats going…
