Sadness:

Michael Rutstein, publisher of Boston Baseball, has seen a sea change at Fenway during the 15 years he has hawked his magazine in the streets outside the ballpark, with the crowds growing more upscale and corporate.

In the old days, it was not uncommon for fans to bring their own scorecards. Now he wonders how many would be able to even keep track.

“The fans who are coming to the games are no longer the ones who care most passionately about the team,” he said. “They are the ones who were able to get tickets. As the price has gone up, the crowds have gotten steadily more upscale.””
