Fenway Park voted best major league ballpark by MLB on FOX fans

Fenway Park has been standing in Kenmore Square for 107 years. Baseball legends like Babe Ruth, Ted Williams, Carl Yastrzemski, and countless others played games there. It is one of the most historic parks in the MLB, and it’s also one of the most popular.

MLB on Fox recently conducted a fan vote of the best major league ballparks. Fenway Park came out on top.

This isn’t surprising at all. In a game that is so preoccupied with history, few other ballparks can compare to Fenway. Perhaps Wrigley Field could make a case, but even still, Fenway is both historic and unique.

Question, for those of you with experience in a large number of major league ballparks (current and otherwise)- would you concur with this statement?

Esskay Orioles Franks — a Baltimore mainstay — to disappear soon from Camden Yards, store shelves

Discontinued production means that for the first time in decades, Esskay hot dogs will no longer be sold at Orioles games…

The ball club plans to choose a new ballpark hotdog, which will be announced with other new food and beverage offerings before the start of the season. And even though Esskay is out, the popular Hot Dog Race will remain, Bader said.

Portland Diamond Project announces plan to build MLB stadium at Terminal 2 site

PORTLAND, Ore. — Portland Diamond Project announced Thursday afternoon that they’ve signed an agreement in principle with the Port of Portland to develop the 45-acre Terminal 2 property for a “state-of-the art ballpark,” a major step in their effort to bring a Major League Baseball team to Portland.

The group also released artist renderings for the stadium, which features a retractable roof, gondola suite, and centerfield and home-plate plazas, among other features. The capacity of the ballpark would be between 32,000 and 34,000, according to John McIsaac, a spokesman for Portland Diamond Project.

McIsaac said the group has talked with MLB and he said they “love” the announcement. Portland Diamond Project is targeting 2022 for first pitch. McIsaac said he believes if the group has a stadium, Portland will get a team one way or another.

In case you’ve been wondering how MLB clubs will extort your hometown for paying up the nose for a stadium, look no further.
