Opera boxes and Wrigley-style rooftops at Fenway? Coulda happened!

4 Comments

The Fenway Park that will celebrate its 100th anniversary tomorrow is a radically different place than it was in 1912. Heck, it’s a substantially different place than it was in 2002 when the new owners took over and made the masterful renovations that make the park a gem today.

But for every good idea there are some not-so-good ideas that never made it past the planning stages. Alex Speier of WEEI details some of those in a fun article today.

Among the ideas: bullpen seats. Theater boxes patrons would climb a ladder to get to.  Luxury boxes above the Green Monster. Rooftop seats not unlike Wrigley Field.  All of which probably sounded good for a couple of seconds but which, thankfully, never came to pass.
