Another Reason why Fenway is a Joke

Postby acsguitar » Thu Aug 11, 2005 3:45 pm

Last night that ball that Kapler hit was obviously a Home Run on Replay.. but I'm sorry the Sox have no grounds to be mad about it considering the Umpires don't sit 40 feet above the ground.

Why do they have a little wooden blocker so that the ball bounces back into the field in the first place.

That field might be historic but it has no place in modern baseball

you're out of your mind. I hate the Sox but Fenway is one of the greatest things in baseball. Period.

I think that most cafe members (even Yanks fans) would agree that Fenway is an incredible place to watch a game. It has so much history and it has such personality--sold out every single game. Thee isnt a stadium I;d rather go to than Fenway.

Modern baseball of course being home to such fine baseball facilities as the Metrodome, Joe Robbie Stadium, and Tropicana Field..

Fenway's a joke because it has a wooden blocker? Hmm... sounds like front page news.
