In the background is the Charles Luckman & Associates-designed Prudential Building, criticized harshly in 1964 by the late Ada Louise Huxtable.

Even architects can get antsy waiting for the next game in an unexpectedly contentious World Series. With the Boston Red Sox tying the series with the St. Louis Cardinals late last night, we’re guaranteed another night at Busch Stadium as well as a return trip to Fenway Park in Boston. What better way to decide allegiances between games than with comparisons of baseball stadium architecture? Esto photographers have documented several past and present hallowed halls dedicated to the “national pastime,” from bleachers to boxes, and from lights to locker rooms. If your hometown team isn’t represented here, well, better luck next season!

Fenway Park has undergone several transformations and additions over the last few years, with the latest completed in 2011, increasing seating capacity to 37,493. In the background is the Charles Luckman & Associates-designed Prudential Building, criticized harshly in 1964 by the late Ada Louise Huxtable.
