There’s a commercial on right now, I don’t remember the product sold (so I guess it’s not a good commercial). The general theme is about choosing heroes or similar.
In it, a child puts up a baseball card with Hank Aaron on it. Another hangs a baseball poster and looks up admiringly.
On kid hangs a picture of a red stadium seat (among a bunch of dark gray ones). Idolizing ball players, I understand. What’s the admiration of a red chair about?
I believe that is THe Lone Red Seat at Fenway where the longest HR ever hit at Fenway landed. Hit by Ted Williams, 502 Feet (I think).
Ah. I knew the Dopers would know. Thanks!
Interesting. I never saw the homerun maker there, but I did see the homeplate marker.
I wondered the same thing about that red chair in the ad (for Aquos TVs, I believe). God bless the Dope! Asked and answered.
There are (were) a white seats in the upper deck of center field in RFK where Frank Howard hit Home runs.
