Luke Scott: Fenway Park Is “A Dump”
Tampa Bay Rays designated hitter Luke Scott said Friday that he thinks the home of the Boston Red Sox, Fenway Park, is “a dump,” according to ESPN.com.
“As a baseball player, going there to work, it’s a dump,” said Scott. “I mean, it’s old. It does have a great feel and nostalgia, but at the end of the day, I’d rather be at a good facility where I can get my work in. A place where I can go hit in the cage, where I have space and it’s a little more comfortable to come to work.
“You’re packed in like sardines there. It’s hard to get your work in. … You have to go to their weight room if you want to lift. From a fan’s perspective, it’s probably pretty cool to go see a game at a historic park. But from a player’s point of view, it’s not a place where you want to go to work.”
Fenway Park is set to kick off its 100th season as the home of the Red Sox.
