Fenway Getting More Seats

From the Associated Press:

The Boston Red Sox are adding more seats to 96-year-old Fenway Park.
The team is working on adding 560 new seats to the Major League's oldest and smallest ballpark.
Workers are using jackhammers in the rain Thursday in the lower deck and cranes are on the field as part of another round of offseason renovations. It's the eighth year of ballpark improvements since the team was purchased by the group led by John Henry and Tom Werner.
This year's work also includes waterproofing and repairing the lower deck, fixing the roof beyond third base and adding seats to the upper deck beyond the first base line.

Will the Red Sox also be adding seats to Fenway South, aka OPACY?

The Red Sox are also removing some seats so capacity will stay at 39,928. No need to rush to Fenway to see it before it comes down. Lucchino says it should be playable for 40 years.
