Fever Pitch

Question: Why is the right field foul pole named after Johnny Pesky?

Chosen answer: Popular Boston Red Sox lore credits the nickname to pitcher Mel Parnell who later became a sportscaster. Pesky had only 6 homers in Fenway Park and all were hit near the right field foul line pole, but never off the pole. The pole is only 302 feet from home plate. The left field foul line pole is named after player Carlton Fisk.

Question: I know it wouldn't make for a very dramatic ending, but is there no way to get from the centre field seats where Lindsay was in Fenway to Ben's seats along the first line? I mean, couldn't she have just ran along a main concourse?

Chosen answer: At the stadiums that I've been to there are ushers posted at the top of the stairs that lead to seats closer to the field. You can't get down there without showing a ticket for that section. They also show her trying to get to that section and being told she can't go in that gate. Also, she sees through the binoculars that Ben is about to sell his tickets and she wants to create a diversion.
