Happy 100th Birthday to Fenway Park
Posted 20 April 2012 - 01:33 PM
Watched the NESN coverage this afternoon of the 100 year celebration festivities for Fenway Park. Even if you're not a fan of the team or the park, there were alot of former players and great characters present for the celebration.
Not surprisingly, Jose Canseco showed up thinking the celebration was all about him. He strolled onto the field flexing his biceps and talking on his cell phone. Quintessential Canseco.
Heard a great story from Peter Gammons before the clebration started:
While coaching with the Expos many years ago, former Sox great Tommy Harper was standing next to The Monster with a young Expos player. The player looked up at the wall and said somewhat disgustedly, "Man, this place is old." To this, Harper replied, "Yep. Ty Cobb played right where you're standing."

Fenway Park has always been my favorite place to watch the Rangers play out of town on TV. I hope Boston doesn't give in to greed and build a new stadium like the Yankees did.
Don't see it happening with the current ownership group. They're huge fans of Fenway.
Now that she's 100 years old, the team will be applying for National Historic Landmark status. When approved, she can never be torn down.
