    The guy wearing the Ted Williams jersey got ripped off.

    John Silber was a Ted fan before you were born.

    I think it means they want the new building on the corner parking lot to extend above the Big Concourse and line up with the back of the Dunkin Dugout seats in the bleachers. That's better than the cliff to nowhere that currently exists there. I'd be curious to see what it does to the wind patterns in right field.

    That was my immediate thought, too. The 600 club cut off some of the prevailing wind pushing out to center field. Will this affect that wind? Will it cut off some of the wind from the east on cold days in April and make it easier to hit the ball out on those days?

    I think I've seen that artist's work on the back of Crow216's cousin.

    “The iconic center field bleachers, known for bargain prices and raucous cheering, have undergone face lifts before.”

    Um. . . not really known for bargain prices anymore.

    Regarding the theater, can’t the Sox find a better partner than livenation? Buncha swill merchants. $80 club shows? No thanks.

    I can remember when I went to games back when I was in law school (79-82), the bleachers were still benches - $3 for lower bleachers, and $2 for upper.

    Looking around at theatres in the Boston area, there aren't any with that particular capacity (~ 5,000). Some acts are too big to play the existing halls like the Boch Center, Symphony Hall, etc. and to go to arenas (TD Garden, Agganis, etc.) and there are availability issues with those venues as well.

    I don't know what the new "Wynn but it's not really Wynn Casino" is going to have for club/show theatre(s) over there in Everett...

    As far as "concession improvements" - if they build something behind the last row of the bleachers - including restrooms and beer stands, it means that if you're in row 50 of the bleachers, you won't have to schlepp all the way downstairs to get a release-and-refill.

    Being able to exit the park that way after games would be a huge improvement. It can take half an hour to get down the bleacher stairs after a playoff game.

    The tent on the waterfront is a 5000 seater, but it is seasonal, of course.
