The Boston Red Sox are adding more seats to 96-year-old Fenway Park.At some point I think they're gonna bump into the laws of physics with these expansions, but I guess they're not there yet.
The team is working on adding 560 new seats to the Major League's oldest and
smallest ballpark Workers are using jackhammers in the rain Thursday in the lower deck and cranes are on the field as part of another round of offseason renovations. It's the eighth year of ballpark improvements since the team was purchased by the group led by John Henry and Tom Werner.
This year's work also includes waterproofing and repairing the lower deck, fixing the roof beyond third base and adding seats to the upper deck beyond the first base line.
They should just do what Big Ten football stadiums do: go to full bench seating, and each year move the little painted numbers closer and closer together. Then, as in college football, every single game can bring forth a new "record" attendance.
