Fenway Park: Boston’s Historic Baseball Battleground
Fenway Park opened on April 20th 1912. The stadium is the home of the Boston Red Sox Baseball team. This Major League Baseball park seats 35.000 fans. Red Sox fans are loyal and enthusiastic about their team and fill Fenway Park beyond its actual seating limit often.
Many believe the selling of Babe Ruth to the New York Yankees brought a curse to the team. Many consider Ruth the greatest player baseball has ever known. The Red Sox would not win a World Series Championship until 2004. The team’s fans believed there was no more curse.
A famous landmark of this stadium is a 37 ft wall in the outfield known as the green monster. It is one of the highest walls for the ball to make it over in a stadium. This wall has a scoreboard that tells the Major League standings, scores from other games played at the same time and details on the current game.
The Red Sox wanted to replace Fenway in 1999. A group named Save Fenway park fought the team to keep the stadium the way it has historically been. Red Sox fans have always stood behind their team in a loyal and fierce manor.
