FENWAY FLAGS – THURSDAY’S SPECIAL ON A SUNDAY MORNING

THURSDAY’S SPECIAL: SEQUENCE

 

Stadiums are, by design, sequential. Pillar after pillar, flag after flag. Layers of seating up and across. This is Fenway Park, home of the Red Sox baseball team. It is the oldest baseball stadium in the United States, the only antique park still standing.

NOTE: Evil Squirrel corrected me. Only one of TWO antique stadiums still standing. The other one is the lovely Wrigley Field in Chicago. It is two or three years newer than Fenway (built in 1912), so it’s practically “the new kid in town.”

      Fenway is a “thing.” It was great being there on a day when no one was playing. We actually could park! Imagine that!

    I’d consider Wrigley Field to be an antique. If nothing else, their restrooms were definitely antique in my one and only visit there 11 years ago. Horse troughs should only be used for horses…

      Wrigley is the OTHER old field. These days, I think that’s pretty much it. They’ve knocked down everything else. They wanted to knock down Fenway. There was a RIOT in Boston, so they rebuilt it and added another section — the section above the green monster and the stupid sky boxes. It’s still a small park, but unlike those huge ones, it is almost always full.

      I love watching games at Wrigley, though probably running into that brick wall, covered with ivy, must be a killer for players. No padding under the ivy.

    Nice to think of those warm sunny days watching baseball.

      Yes. But they will be back. We’re just getting a little old for ice and snow. I used to like snow … but I was a great deal younger 😀
