MLB: Toronto Blue Jays at Boston Red Sox

A general view of the Green Monster scoreboard before a game between the Boston Red Sox and the Toronto Blue Jays at Fenway Park on April 9, 2019.

BOSTON — Last weekend, I had a good time at Fenway Park again. Even though the Red Sox are having a forgettable season, I treasure any excursion to baseball’s oldest ballpark and pray that it lasts another 100 years. (It had its 100th birthday April 20, 2012).

Fenway is like a Model T still taking the family on a ride through the countryside. A Delta DC 3 still carrying the mail from Jackson, Miss. to New Orleans, La., Mona Lisa continuing to smile and Bing Crosby singing “White Christmas” at the ice rink in December at Rockefeller Center.
