Upper deck?

The Redsox have announced that they will soon reveal a plan to add 2,000 new seats to Fenway Park.

I've said all along the it might be possible to add an "upper deck" to the first and third baselines in such a way that the construction wouldn't interfere with ongoing play.

From a story about the plan in today's Globe:

The latest information was more specific than remarks principal owner John Henry made to the Globe in May, when he said that a ballpark expansion would bring park capacity to no more than 40,000 fans. Henry said the team was considering adding to the four rows of seats now on the roof on both the right-field and left-field sides of the park.
