I just read this article and I was sickened to know that a historical monument was going to be demolished to make way for homes and stores. One would think that MLB would dish out the money in order to keep buildings of historical significance. I would think that if Wrigley, Fenway or Yankees stadium were left vacant (which I doubt they would want to leave them) then MLB would have wanted to keep them around. ESPN would probably buy Fenway to have Peter Gammons, Kruk, et al broadcast from there for Baseball Tonight. It just is a shame that a building that has been around since 1912 and has many memories will be torn down.
