Fenway Park, the legendary home to the Boston Red Sox, is packed tightly into Kenmore Square in Boston, Massachusetts. Along with Wrigley Field, it is one of only two “classic parks” still in use, referring to the era of ballparks built at the turn of the 20th century. Erected in 1912, the stadium is the oldest in Major League Baseball, and is the cornerstone of Boston’s century-old love story with America’s pastime. Thanks to its die-hard fanbase, the team’s recent success, and its small stadium size, Fenway boasts an unimaginable record for most consecutive sold out games, with over 700 between 2003-2012.
The ballpark only holds 37,000 people, making it the fourth smallest stadium in the league, and even this number is thanks to recent reconstructions. Because of its location in a dense neighborhood, the challenges of expanding the stadium resulted in unique kinks in design that defined its character, including the Green Monster that looms over left field, the Triangle in center field, and Pesky’s Pole.
Fenway’s long history has seen the play of baseball legends like Babe Ruth, Jackie Robinson and Ted Williams. Along with Red Sox games at Fenway Park, which have included their winning World Series campaigns in 2004 and 2007, it has held NFL games, soccer and hockey matches, political campaigns, and regularly holds concerts for bands capable of selling out the venue, such as Bruce Springsteen, Aerosmith, and The Rolling Stones.
