BOSTON (AP) -- The Boston Red Sox are adding more seats to 96-year-old Fenway Park. The team is working on adding 560 new seats to the Major
League's oldest and smallest ballpark

Workers are using jackhammers in the rain Thursday in the lower deck and cranes are on the field as part of another round of offseason renovations. It's the eighth year of ballpark improvements since the team was purchased by the group led by John Henry and Tom Werner.

This year's work also includes waterproofing and repairing the lower deck, fixing the roof beyond third base and adding seats to the upper deck beyond the first base line.
