The Boston Globe


Over time, Fenway Park has proven incomparable

New ballparks try to blend modern amenities with a nostalgic touch of yore, but nothing comes close to Boston’s nonpareil shrine

The question: How do other ballparks compare with Fenway Park? The answer is simple: They do not. Wrigley Field in Chicago comes closest, as it is similar in age (Wrigley turns 100 in 2014), and has unique nuances that might never be duplicated.

Both have an old ballpark scent, which comes with 100 years of existence.
