Celebrating Boston Red Sox baseball great Carl Yastrzemski.

Tuesday, November 01, 2005


In Quincy, Massachusetts, a group is building a half-size replica of Fenway Park for Little Leaguers and others. The project even includes a museum for Yaz.

Mini-Fenway will be built on 12 acres of state-owned land off of Ricciuti Drive in West Quincy and will seat 5,000, mimicking its bigger twin down to the last ad. Iacobucci said that CITGO officials had already been out to make measurements for their sign, and that he was working with the sponsors whose familiar signs fill Fenway, from the Coke bottle towering over the outfield to the Dunkin' Donuts billboard


Once the stadium is built, there are bigger plans: a baseball diamond-shaped movie theater that plays classic baseball films and Red Sox away games, a domed indoor field with batting and pitching cages, and a pro shop. A Carl Yastrzemski Museum will have special resonance at the park, since the famous hitter is the first Little League player to make it to the Hall of Fame.

Cool! Wonder if they'll let you rent it out for parties?
