The Boston Red Sox announced a few improvements they are making to Fenway Park this season.
The new features include a refurbished Third Base Deck, the installation of Red Sox retired numbers along the Yawkey Way extension near the new commuter rail station, an improved game-day experience by the NESN stage on Yawkey Way, and new menu offerings for fans to enjoy this season.
The upgraded Third Base Deck features a new, 40-foot bar with seating and full drink menu on the deck’s upper floor, while the lower level will house newly appointed concession stands with new digital menu boards and televisions, including a 45 x 161-inch video wall comprising eight 46-inch television screens facing the bar that will show the game in high definition.
The Third Base Deck’s lower level also includes a new Tasty Burger stand featuring signature hamburgers and shakes available in vanilla, chocolate, and “Green Monster” mint flavors from the popular Boylston Street eatery.
Outside the park, the Red Sox’s retired numbers, along with Jackie Robinson’s No. 42 that was retired by Major League Baseball in 1997, now adorn the walkway that leads commuters from the new Yawkey Station platform to Brookline Avenue.
On Yawkey Way, fans will experience an enlivened ‘NESN Zone,’ home of NESN’s pregame show, which, in addition to the NESN stage, will include a NESN-themed specialty grill stand that features a variety of new food offerings inspired by NESN’s on-air personalities, and a refurbished ‘Budweiser Bash’ bar loaded with flat screen televisions.
In addition, the Budweiser Right Field Roof Deck will also feature an expanded menu with items such as a beef tenderloin sandwich, fish and chips, Maine crab cakes, a breakfast burger featuring fried eggs and mozzarella cheese, and Poutine, a Canadian dish consisting of french fries with gravy and shredded cheese.
