Ashley Judd took some time away from her grueling rehab for her leg to take in a baseball game and a first-class tour behind the scenes of Fenway Park.

The Double Jeopardy star shared her experience in a series of photos and a video on Instagram Tuesday.

“It was so refreshing to take a summer evening’s pause from the troubles of the word [sic] to engage in #americaspasttime at the iconic and nostalgic @fenwaypark to see the @redsox play #baseball,” she captioned the photo. “… To be hosted at the most historic park in the country with such a warm welcome was just awesome. Here I am inside the #greenmonster where I was stunned to see scratches on the wall where someone kept track of #tedwilliams home runs….so very cool! Thank you, #redsox for helping us make some very special family memories! Dad said he hadn’t had so much fun since he was 14. …”

It’s unclear when she visited the stadium, however. The Red Sox haven’t played at home since beating the Twins 12-2 on Thursday.

Ashley Judd stunned fans earlier this month when she posted a video on Instagram that showed her going for a hike. Judd nearly lost her leg earlier this year after taking a serious fall while in the Congolese rainforest.

“Dear Friends, it is with reverence and quiet awe I offer this update,” she shared along with a video of her walking up a picturesque Swiss mountainside. “Today, five months and three weeks after the accident in the Congolese rainforest, I walked again, and in what fashion! I hiked in the #SwissNationalPark.”

Ashley Judd Details Her Road to Recovery

Doctors gave Ashley Judd little hope of making a full recovery after several surgeries to repair her right leg and foot. But Judd didn’t care much for that prognosis.

In one video, Judd showed off how much mobility she has in her right foot. That is the foot surgeons said would likely never heal. They told her to expect limited mobility if she ever learned to use it again. However, four months after breaking her leg in multiple places and undergoing a hellish 55-hour saga to get help, Judd said her foot has near full range of motion again.

Though Judd remains resolute in her recovery, she tempers her expectations. She said her leg will never be the same as before, but she accepts that.

“My leg will never be the same. She is a new leg. And I love her. We are buddies. We have come a long way and we have a fabulous life ahead,” she posted on Instagram earlier this month.

The Hollywood star and Harvard grad also said earlier this year that she plans on returning to the rainforest when she feels she’s strong enough. All of her problems started in the Democratic Republic of the Congo in February when she traveled to the rainforest to study the endangered bonobos. Ashley Judd fell over a downed tree and broke her leg in four places. She had to be carried out of the rainforest and driven several hours to get to a hospital.
