No sooner did I enter Fenway Park Monday night for the Red Sox-Yankees wildcard playoff game than I ran across a food booth manned by old Wellesley favorite Ming Tsai of Blue Ginger restaurant fame.
Now he’s selling a more substantial version of the Mings Bings once offered by the restaurant. These are plant-based and rice-wrapped morsels in various flavors, including cheeseburger and sausage & peppers.
Mings Bings was making a special appearance under the stands near Gate B, though you can also find the product at local grocery stores and online.
Later during the Yankees elimination party, I spied a couple of familiar Wellesley faces on the big screen. Naturally, one of them was superfan Lynne Smith, the famous hat lady. I wasn’t quick enough with my camera to grab a photo or video of that, but Major League Baseball recently paid homage to Lynne via TikTok.

Just to let you know.. A few minutes after the game an ESPN camera man did pan on Lynn. They didn’t comment… clearly not knowing about her local fame. …. Their loss!
