a sleepover at Fenway Park?

It's being promoted as the "first-ever" sleepover at Fenway Park, but they might want to adjust that wording in the headline.

The text of the press release is accurate: the winner would indeed be the "first-ever guest to spend a night in a private suite" at the ballpark.

And it's a great idea.

But there have been other sleepovers.  The late Al Forester told me back in 1999 that he'd slept over at the park on more than one occasion.  So I did it myself, and even wrote a story about it - "Night Games" - which was published in Boston magazine in October 2002.

Not that I actually slept.
