Inside The Monster

If you are an out-of-town sportswriter covering the Red Sox, it's only a matter of time before you write a story about going inside the Wall.

For Allan Ryan of the Toronto Star, it was yesterday.
If the left-field foul pole was some giant hinge and you swung the wall "open" so that it ran down the foul line, the outer edge would be eight feet beyond third base, 82 feet from home plate.
Bonus: Ryan doesn't repeat the false story of Manny's Bathroom Break.

Double Bonus: Ryan spells his first name correctly.
