— Fenway Park is the 13th top landmark in the country, according to TripAdvisor.

The travel website, based in Needham, put together a list of the 25 top landmarks in the United States for 2017 and placed the iconic ballpark in its top 15.

“These iconic sights are cultural and historical touchstones for visitors across the globe,” Barbara Messing, chief marketing officer for TripAdvisor said in a statement.

TripAdvisor determined the top landmarks based on the quality and volume of reviews and ratings for landmarks worldwide over a one-year period.

The No. 1 landmark was the Golden Gate Bridge. Other landmarks that beat Fenway were the Lincoln Memorial, Grand Central, the Statue of Liberty, Alcatraz, the Empire State Building and Rockefeller Center.

— Alex Rodriguez has reportedly signed a deal to join ABC News to appear as a contributor for Good Morning America, World News Tonight and Nightline. He will report on sports, family and possibly financial topics.

“This doesn’t mean that George Stephanopoulos and Michael Strahan should watch their backs — but ABC is talking to Alex about taking a role in the news division and expanding his appearances across a number of shows,” a source told the NY Post. “Viewers are not going to see Alex weekly, more like once a month. But it could be more if he does well.”

“Alex is interested in doing lifestyle, family-oriented programing, such as a piece on how much your kids should be working out, or business and personal-finance reports, like how to overhaul your bills,” another source said.

Rodriguez is an MLB analyst for Fox Sports and is dating Jennifer Lopez, who has two shows on ABC’s rival network, NBC. He has also already co-hosted The View and appeared on Shark Tank, both ABC shows.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “It’s not a concern because we’ve got the least number of strikeouts in baseball as a team. It’s a lineup that has a high number of guys that have good plate coverage, and we are putting a good number of people on base.” — John Farrell, on the Red Sox’ lack of offense in their 5-0 loss to the Mariners on Sunday
