It’s Fenway Park’s time to shine

Ballparks don’t live to be 100. All the great old ones, except Fenway Park, are gone. Forbes Field, Tiger Stadium, Ebbets Field, the Polo Grounds, Shibe Park, Crosley Field, the original Yankee Stadium. All gone.

Not many people live to be 100. Bob Hope, George Burns, Strom Thurmond, Irving Berlin, and the Queen Mum all crossed the century line. Rose Kennedy, made it, too. Rose was 104 years old when she died in 1995.
