Opening Day for the Boston Red Sox is Monday — it's an afternoon game at Fenway Park against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

To get ready for the season, as workers took care of some finishing touches at Fenway, I spent time there last week with Ed Jesser. Jesser is a semi-retired Democratic political operative in his 70s. He is Boston-born and bred, a life-long Sox fan and a Sox season ticket holder for decades.

We sat in his seats at Fenway, first row by third base and he talked about what keeps him coming back every season.

This segment aired on April 2, 2017.
