Happy 100th Birthday Fenway Park

 

Baseball’s holiest cathedral turns 100 years old today.  And even though I hate John Henry, Larry Lucchino, Ben Cherrington, Bobby Valentine, Kevin Youkilis, Josh Beckett, and the 22 other guys on the team not named Dustin Pedroia, it’s still a good day in Red Sox nation.  Fenway is as special as they come.  The renovations made over the past decade or so have managed to modernize the park, while preserving the characteristics which have made Fenway the most important cultural landmark in the city of Boston.  Hopefully it stands for another 100 years.

PS: Theo Epstein was General Manager during the majority of the renovations to Fenway Park.  While obviously he didn’t have much say in that department in Boston, he certainly observed how added seats and additional revenue streams in the stadium allowed him to grow his baseball operations budget.  That experience could prove valuable as Wrigley goes through a similar renovation process.
