MLB rumors: Red Sox hoping for All-Star Game return to Fenway Park in this year

The 1999 MLB All-Star Game at Fenway Park was an iconic event.

Not only did Boston Red Sox pitcher Pedro Martinez dazzle fans with an MVP performance, Major League Baseball honored its All-Century Team before the game, including a special moment featuring Boston legend Ted Williams.

Red Sox fans have been wanting another All-Star Game at Fenway Park for some time, and according to The Boston Globe’s Peter Abraham, the club is hoping to get one by the end of the next decade.

“The Sox are hoping to host the game in 2029 to mark the 30th anniversary of the last time,” Abraham writes. “But they’re flexible on the year.”

It’s rare that an article this short can hit on seemingly every reason why the sports fans of a certain city are so heavily disliked, but this one manages to do so- without intending to….

Unauthorized drone flies over Fenway Park

A drone — an unauthorized one; not one owned by a TV network or anything — made at least two passes over Fenway Park last night. It was first spotted around 9:30 pm and was last seen around 10:20 pm. The Red Sox said they reported it to the Boston Police and the FAA.

According to FAA regulations, flying drones within three miles of a Major League Baseball stadium is prohibited from one hour before a game to one hour after. Which is a thing I had not considered until just this very moment but I suppose makes sense.

Are we sure it wasn’t Amazon, trying to deliver better starting pitching?

Sam Kennedy hints Red Sox could host MLB All-Star Game within 5 years

It’s been 20 years since the MLB All-Star Game came to Fenway Park. According to Sam Kennedy, that drought may not reach 25.

The Red Sox president and CEO said Saturday he hopes the Midsummer Classic will come back to Boston within the next half-decade.

“I would hope that Fenway would have the opportunity to host an All-Star game in the next 3-5 years,” Kennedy wrote in an email to MassLive.com’s Chris Cotillo.

Given how many teams there are, how often should it go to Boston?

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?
