in his defense the name "the green monster" pretty much only gets used in Fenway Park or on ESPN... so if he chooses not to watch ESPN that definitely does not make him NOT a baseball fan. i am a tigers fan and have literally never seen a baseball game with commentary other than the Detroit announcers who certainly don't use the name "the green monster".
Wrong. Every baseball fan knows what the Green Monster is. Fenway Park is the most historical park left. I can also recall Miguel Cabrera putting one into the parking lot behind the monster and the Tigers announcers referring to it as the Green Monster and not the left field wall.
