Chef Ron Abell makes sure Fenway crowds never go hungry
Contrary to popular belief, Fenway Park Senior Executive Chef Ron Abell does a lot more than grill hot dogs—though we’re sure he can make a mean Fenway Frank. Abell has been in charge of Fenway’s culinary operations since 2006, supervising everything from the exclusive EMC Club to the lowliest concession stand. He cooks for the owners, the players and their wives, the media, the player’s club and staffers. If you’re eating in Fenway Park, Abell has likely had something to do with it.
Red Sox catcher David Ross on beards, Twitter and bouncing back
After suffering a severe concussion last season, Red Sox backup catcher David Ross was forced to take off two months, missing a total of 65 games. There were times when he wondered if he’d ever play again, but he returned to his spot behind the plate in August and ended up playing in four of the six World Series games— including the series clincher on October 30, 2013.
Fenway Park is one of the oldest and smallest baseball stadiums in America—and also one of its most beloved. Situated in the middle of a dense city block, the park has endured a lot over the years, including multiple fires, threats of demolition, and a near-century-long losing streak from its home team. Nevertheless, Red Sox fans consider it sacred—some even going so far as to spread family members’ ashes on its grounds—and with a 100th anniversary under its belt and no end date in sight, Fenway seems poised to play on for generations to come.
