Will Sox Draft HS Player Named 'Fenway Parks'?

Our latest entry into this year's "You Can't Make This Stuff" sweepstakes is the story of a young high-school baseball player named Fenway Parks. That's right, it's not a typo: Mr. Fenway Parks. The kid will be a 2014 graduate of Spanish River Community High School in Boca Raton, Florida. He's 6'1" and 195 pounds and projects as a third or second baseman. Here's the scouting report from, "Strong compact build, fairly mature physically. Right handed hitter, good strength, some stiffness in swing but creates very good bat speed, hard line drive contact in games, showed ability to lift and pull the ball in BP, has hitting tools and a feel for hitting." Hmm. No mention of cramped seating or obstructed views. Think the kid's parents are Red Sox fans? If the Carmine Hose don't draft this kid, they have no sense of humor over there on Yawkey Way.
