    As a lifelong Boston resident and Red Sox season ticket holder, this was a great read with some facts that were both amusing and intriguing. It was interesting to read about the progression of ballpark design improvement. The quest for better sightlines and fan comfort continues to this day.

    Fences 250 feet from home? Submarine/underhand pitches from the mound? I could have been an 1871 Red Stockings superstar! Thanks for providing such fantastic visuals of these old ballparks. With the descriptions of the bleachers, outfield fences, and ballpark dimensions, I felt like I was sitting right there in the stands. Great Neil Young reference too….keep these articles coming!
