There are ways to modernize and upgrade the park immensely while maintaining it's classic look. The last couple bleacher renovations are evidence of that, as well as the adding of seats behind the plate between the dugouts. One big piece of evidence is Fenway Park, period. New-ballpark amenities and feel sure would be nice.
Exactly. I was at a game 2 seasons ago: a rainy night in late September so the place was rather empty and the concourses felt so spacious and open. I go to Cubs/Sox last year with a normal large crowd and you can't move on the concourse. It took us 45 minutes to get down the ramps just to leave! It was unreal.
