The Sox didn't come away with a win at Monday's Opening Day matchup with Baltimore, but it was still a good day to be a fan.
Yawkey Way was again flooded with red, Fenway Franks were slathered with mustard and thousands agreed to pay a small fortune for a glass of beer. And Keytar Bear was there decked out in home-team colors to set the mood.
In the end, the Red Sox lost 9-7. A bummer, for sure, but spring has sprung - and there are plenty more innings at Fenway where those first nine came from.
