Fans have a magical connection to ballparks, and no venue is more beloved than Fenway, the oldest park in the major leagues. Janet Marie Smith is directing the revitalization of Fenway Park and was involved in the planning and development of Atlanta’s Turner Field and Baltimore’s Camden Yards, hailed as the gold standard of modern ballparks. Smith will take us through the evolution of ballpark design from the early 1900s through the late 1990s, and talk about the Red Sox’s success in bringing modern improvements to Fenway while preserving its historic charm. Don't miss this chance to hear how Fenway Park, first constructed in 1912, has been made current once again after decades of uncertainty.
