    When you talk about great baseball stadiums, you have to bring Fenway Park into the conversation. First of all, it isn't called by some stupid corporate name. When you say Fenway, even a casual baseball fan knows what you are talking about.

    This was our second trip to Fenway. We have been to all 30 MLB parks and we traveled specially to go to Fenway again. It is impossible to compare Fenway with other parks because only Fenway and Wrigley Field are in that category. I can say that the food is just as good as anywhere else, but even better are the sausage stands just outside the park on Landsdowne Ave. We took the "T" to and from the stadium. It is easier and cheaper than trying to drive to the stadium and find parking.
