After Saturday night's D-Backs loss in Boston, MLB.com's Steve Gilbert and Fox Sports Arizona's Todd Walsh got what they needed from the visitors' clubhouse, then headed back upstairs to the press box of the 101-year-old Fenway Park. The elevator decided it didn't want to cooperate.
Gilbert and Walsh were stuck in the elevator for about 20 minutes, and naturally, tweeted the whole ordeal.

The elevator repair man said for us to "hang in there." Is that gallows humor?— Todd Walsh (@ToddWalsh) August 4, 2013
They are drilling through the roof of the elevator car to get us.— Steve Gilbert (@SteveGilbertMLB) August 4, 2013
In case you're wondering, this is what an elevator shaft looks like at Fenway Park. pic.twitter.com/AfZNe2jrJv— Steve Gilbert (@SteveGilbertMLB) August 4, 2013
My fav part of being rescued from the elevator at Fenway? Our hero saying as he dropped in from the ceiling "You're not tweeting are ya?"— Todd Walsh (@ToddWalsh) August 4, 2013
The next afternoon, Gilber and Walsh returned to the scene of their imprisonment.
