BOSTON (WHDH) - Opening Day for the Red Sox at Fenway Park this year will bring with it a series of improvements at the concession stands and beyond. 

With Opening Day now just around the corner, officials gathered at Fenway Park this week to showcase items including a revamped locker room for the Red Sox, new LED field lighting and expanded artificial intelligence self check-out. 

“We have definitely turned the page,” Red Sox Chairman Tom Werner said. “It’s been a great vibe in spring training all March and [we’re] really looking forward to getting going here on Thursday.”

Mayor Michelle Wu got a walk through Fenway’s improvements on Tuesday. 

The improvements, officials said, are all aimed at delivering a better experience. 

New food favorites are also coming to the ballpark, including gluten free pizza, a helmet nacho dish and crispy avocado fries.

With the first pitch just a few days away, officials said Boston has much to look forward to.

“We need to stay healthy, grind at bats, throw strikes, but I think we’re going to have a fun summer,” Red Sox Chief Baseball Officer Chaim Bloom said. 

Opening Day is set for Thursday.
