Up here in the Boston area, where I am located, the weather is miserable. Winter is attempting to reclaim it’s territory, as today have been a cold and dreary grey. Even worse, it has rained all day, causing tonight’s Rays-Red Sox game to be rained out. The makeup date is June 18th, where the game will be played at 1:05 as part of a day-night double header.
However, the cold wet spring day would not be a problem if Fenway was a dome, like the Trop. Thanks to the wonders of technology, we can now see what Fenwaycana would look like:
Just imagine all that history under the roof. The Green Monster, Pesky’s Pole, the only ground rule triple in baseball (if a baseball hits the ladder on the Green Monster and goes over the wall – it’s a triple) and the catwalks all merged together. A little rain outside? Doesn’t matter – Play Ball!
Tomorrow’s game at 1:05 will still feature the matchup of David Price against Jon Lester. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies, with temperatures in the upper 50’s.
