2 Arizona Reporters Get Stuck In Fenway Park Elevator

BOSTON (AP) — Two Arizona reporters had to climb out through the top of a stuck elevator at Fenway Park on Saturday night after the Diamondbacks’ game against the Boston Red Sox.

Steve Gilbert of mlb.com and Todd Walsh of Fox Sports Arizona were returning to the press box after the Diamondbacks’ 5-2 loss.

They boarded the elevator at the ground floor but got stuck before reaching the second.

After a ballpark worker couldn’t get the car to move, they climbed through the top and out through the second floor.

They were stuck for about 20 minutes and neither was injured, Gilbert said.

“Thankfully, both are all right,” Red Sox spokesman Kevin Gregg said. “Our facilities personnel here at Fenway are aware of the matter.”

Fenway Park celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2012 — the oldest ballpark in baseball history.

The Red Sox have put $285 million into renovations since 2002, but the building still shows its age in many places.
