In Just 55 Days, Fenway Park Will Be Back In Full Swing

(WeatherBug Webcam)
In just 48 days, the 2018 Red Sox will open their season on the road in the plush, but not overly ostentatious MostPulpDome in Tampa (March 29th). Then, just seven days later (Thursday, April 5th) they hold their Home Opener at Fenway against those same Rays. Fenway Park is looking a little ragged this morning (see picture), but we have every faith that World Class Groundskeeper Dave Mellor will have the old girl in tip-top shape in plenty of time. The 106-year-old ballpark is under a lot of strain these days—what with football and hockey games, concerts and any other money-making scheme John Henry can come up with. But the old place always preservers.
