Fenway Park

Capacity: 37,493     Opened: 1912

 

Fenway Park is baseball’s oldest ballpark and Red Sox “chowder head” fans are among the most passionate in sports. Ship.Me.Up.To.Boston.

 

What makes this stadium unique?

Nicknamed “America’s Most Beloved Ballpark,” Fenway blends in with the surrounding Kenmore neighborhood. So well in fact, when Roger Clemens arrived in Boston in 1984 he didn’t realize he was at the stadium until his cab driver pointed to the lights. The park’s most prominent feature is the just over 37 feet wall nicknamed the Green Monster in left field. Seating is available on top of the Green Monster and it is a good place to catch home runs from right handed batters. Behind the “Williamsburg” section in right field is the lone red seat that signifies the longest home run hit in Fenway to this date (502 feet) by none other than Ted Williams himself. Not hard to miss in the sea of green before a game. Both foul poles are named after former players. The left is Fisk Foul Pole and the right is Pesky’s Pole. Before the game stop by the Red Sox Hall of Fame behind the EMC club to see some of the most memorable moments in this club’s storied history. Yawkey Way (by Gates A-D) is an extension of Fenway Park on game days. Get to the park when it opens to enjoy live entertainment, concessions, and Autograph Alley!
