From what I've read it was in disrepair the last several years of it's existence as a baseball park. In fact because of the conditions it was judged beneath the standards of ML baseball. If it was in bad shape 14+ years ago, it's way beyond that now too. The city owns it, and even if they were inclined to repair it, it's got asbestos issues and other issues that would make any rehab project quite expensive. Not everything can be saved.

Oh and Don Buford (photo hanging to the right of Al Lopez) began his major league career with the Sox.
