The Red Sox unveiled their final improvements to Fenway Park on Friday during the home opener festivities, capping a 10-year project dedicated to the renovation and revitalization of Boston’s beloved landmark.
Fenway is 99 years old, however, and there are probably a few areas where the park could use bit more sprucing up. The recent renovations have drastically improved the park over the past decade, but there are likely a few more projects that Red Sox Nation would like to see completed at the Fens.
Boston’s historic ballpark has one of the smallest capacities in the MLB, and while that provides a personal feel with the baseball team and the fans around you, it wouldn’t hurt to have a few more seats in the upper deck. The upper-deck seats not only provide an awesome view of the game, but it’s also a cheaper ticket.
Red Sox Nation was exposed to one of the most exciting renovations in Fenway history when the new ownership team decided to install seats on the infamous Green Monster. Seats on the Monstah are some of the most-sought-after tickets in town, and are very difficult to get no matter what time of year it is. Adding more seats to that area would allow more fans to enjoy the game from one of the most unique viewpoints in all of sports.
Now, let’s get to the structure issue that has had fans complaining since Fenway was built — the pole supports that obstruct the fan’s view. These are some of the worst seats in baseball, and while the seats have a bit of old-school charm, it gets a bit annoying after the first inning as the occupant can only see half the field at a time.
Fenway is a park full of quirks, and recent improvements have brought it up to modern standards, but which additional renovation would you like to see in the park’s future?
