Fenway Park taking a long winter’s nap



The media was invited to Fenway Park on Tuesday to tag along when Joel Hanrahan took a tour of the place. I snapped a few photographs with my iPhone just for kicks.

Empty ballparks are interesting, maybe because they seem so much bigger than when a game is going on. Plus you can hear the wind or the traffic going by, all the sounds that usually get swallowed up.

Here are two photos of Fenway covered in tarps and a light coating of snow. One is from the press box and the other from the base of the wall in left field.

As Hall of Famer Rogers Hornsby once said, “People ask me what I do in winter when there’s no baseball. I’ll tell you what I do. I stare out the window and wait for spring.”
