It was the bottom of the seventh, bases loaded, tie ballgame as Jonny Gomes stepped to the plate. Tension was running high throughout the faithful Fenway bleachers, as one and all sat on the edge of their seats in antagonizing anticipation of the next pitch. A single voice broke the tension: “Oh wait, this IS just like rounders!” exclaimed Niamh Hegarty, a Chinese language and culture student at University College Cork. The usual bleacher creatures sitting out in section 38 were joined that night by a contingent of J-1 Irish summer students led by the IIIC’s Sean Hansen, a Learning Exchange Programs intern. These and many other J-1 students have been coming to the Center in the past few months to seek assistance in finding jobs, housing, and other counsel. Sometimes, they even leave with Red Sox tickets! Overall, it was a great time, as the Sox pulled out a classic 7-5 victory over the Blue Jays and won over some new fans in the process!
