Proposed new Fenway Park would retain cherished details

The Boston Red Sox announced plans for a new Fenway Park yesterday, a project budgeted at $545 million that mimics so many characteristic details of the beloved current stadium that the team even plans to dig up some of the old turf and play on it in the new facility.

The proposed stadium, where play could begin in 2003, would be built adjacent to the existing park and would retain the name. While they were short on financial details yesterday, including precise terms for the required government support, team officials expressed optimism that they can pay for the stadium without selling naming rights.
