IS MOMENTUM BUILDING TO RECREATE FENWAY NEAR YAWKEY WAY?
Published April 2, 1998
The Red Sox are "strongly considering a plan to recreate and shift Fenway Park from its current location to a site across Yawkey Way on the west side of the ballpark," according to Anthony Flint on the front page of the BOSTON GLOBE. The new park would be built beside Fenway Park while the team continues to play there. After construction is completed, Fenway amenities, such as the Green Monster, "would be moved or recreated and incorporated into the new structure." Red Sox spokesperson Dick Bresciani: "We are investigating several options. But we don't want to come out and say anything until we absolutely know what direction we're going." Flint adds that the ballpark effort "has picked up momentum in recent weeks" as a development team has been assembled which includes local execs and HOK Sports Facilities Group (Anthony Flint, BOSTON GLOBE, 4/2).
