There's nothing like it for diehard Red Sox fans: sitting in the stands with Pesky's Pole to the right and the Green Monster out in left. And, of course, the Sox on the field, where they've been since Fenway Park opened in 1912.

Fenway has come a long way since then. The owners of the Sox promised to spruce up the park back in 2001, and on Tuesday they announced the final set of major improvements that will be made to the park this off-season. The estimated cost of renovations over the past ten years? $285 million dollars.

Radio Boston's Sacha Pfeiffer took a trip to Fenway and met with Jonathan Gilula, executive vice president of business for the Red Sox.

This program aired on October 19, 2010.
