Luke Scott: Fenway Park Is 'A Dump'

Apr 13, 2012 2:07 PM EST

As the Red Sox get ready to kick off their 100th season at Fenway Park, Rays hitter Luke Scott says the ballpark is "a dump."

"As a baseball player, going there to work, it's a dump," Scott said. "I mean, it's old. It does have a great feel and nostalgia, but at the end of the day, I'd rather be at a good facility where I can get my work in. A place where I can go hit in the cage, where I have space and it's a little more comfortable to come to work.

"You're packed in like sardines there. It's hard to get your work in. ... You have to go to their weight room if you want to lift. From a fan's perspective, it's probably pretty cool to go see a game at a historic park. But from a player's point of view, it's not a place where you want to go to work."
