Home of the Boston Red Sox
About this listing
On September 2, 2015, you can be the first fan to spend a Night At the Home of the Boston Red Sox. Is staying overnight at Fenway Park a dream of yours? Tell us why. Simply enter to win by 11:59 p.m. ET on 8/20/15.
Ever wonder what it would be like to sleep in Fenway Park? Imagine walking out of the tunnel in uniform. What does it feel like to take batting practice where Teddy Ballgame and Yaz won the Triple Crown, or play catch where Pedro pitched his way to the Hall of Fame? Your Red Sox dreams can now come true. This is your once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience Fenway like no fan before you, your opportunity to live out your dream moments while in the shadows of the Green Monster.
On September 2nd, we’re opening our doors for the first-ever sleepover at Fenway Park. Your home for the night includes your very own Green Monster pillow, a luxurious king-size bed with views of our manicured outfield lawns, meals prepared with produce from Fenway Farms, and experiences typically reserved only for players--check out other views of our home by clicking on the photo above. And don’t worry, a 37-foot tall wall provides all the privacy you need.
One lucky winner and their guest will head straight to the changing room, where jerseys will be pressed and ready for the final home game of the season against the Yankees. You’ll enjoy a $500 spending spree at the Team Store, meet Sox legend Luis Tiant, and stand on the field with your teammates for the National Anthem.
You’ll watch the first inning from inside the Green Monster, where you can swap stories with the Man in the Monster. Once you’re settled into your seats, the one and only Luis Tiant will swing by to watch a few innings with you. Don’t celebrate too hard, though, because your evening is just beginning and your post-game interview awaits.
First opened on April 20th, 1912, the oldest ballpark in baseball has never hosted a fan sleepover until now. But don’t let that fool you: your suite for the night will be fully designed to recapture over a hundred years of vintage Fenway moments. After your celebration dinner on the right-field deck, you’re free to watch some post-game clips or relax in your 37,000-seat home. In the morning, you’ll get an exclusive tour of Fenway Farms and enjoy breakfast on top of the Monster before hitting the batting cages for a final round of swings.

About the Host, Tim
Hi, I’m Tim Wakefield. I played with the Boston Red Sox for 17 of my 20 big league seasons, where I won two World Series championships. Community and sportsmanship are everything to me and I’m proud to have been nominated for the Roberto Clemente award eight times. I still call Boston home and you can watch me as an pre and postgame analyst for all Sox games on NESN.
Though my fastest pitch was around 75 MPH, and my slowest closer to 55 MPH, I ended my career with the second most strikeouts in team history. Long live the knuckleball!
