The baseball secret in the basement of a Fenway bar



ant to see where the Yankees suck at batting practice? Want to take a few swings yourself? Grab 19 of your closest friends and walk downstairs at Game On!, whose basement overlooks the visiting team batting cages inside Fenway Park. Groups of 20 or more can book the cages when there’s not a game, but anyone can see them through the windows of the Game On! basement any time they’re not being used by players.



The corner of Fenway Park that’s now Game On! was once the only bowling alley in a major-league baseball stadium: Ryan Family Amusements, which had 20 alleys for candlepin bowling. It closed in 2004.
