You’re taking a big gamble when you name your kid Fenway Parks. What if it turns out that baseball isn’t his sport? That’s a life sentence to ridicule right there. But fortunately for him, Fenway Parks is good at baseball — so much so that the junior second baseman at Spanish River Community High School in Boca Raton, FL, is being recruited by several colleges.

Here’s his photo. And here’s the scouting report:

“Strong compact build, fairly mature physically, looks 5-11/190. Right handed hitter, good strength, some stiffness in swing but creates very good bat speed, hard line drive contact in games, showed ability to lift and pull the ball in BP, has hitting tools and a feel for hitting. Third base look and profile, has arm strength with on line carry, good hands and balance at the ball, solid defensive actions, quickness and agility will be a question at second base but bat would be big plus at that position.”

Over in Indiana, of course, there is a youngster named Wrigley Fields. But if someone in Maryland could name their baby Camden Yards, that would beat everything.
