The oldest baseball park in Major League Baseball, Fenway Park is home to the Boston Red Sox
. John L. Taylor, who owned the Red Sox until 1911, chose the name to promote Fenway Realty. Fenway Park opened in 1912 with the Red Sox defeating the New York Highlanders. In 2012, the park celebrated its centennial, the same year it was added to the National Register of Historic Places. Aside from Red Sox games, Fenway Park plays host to soccer games, boxing matches, ski and snowboard competitions, ice skating and hockey events, football games and live music concerts.
Fenway Park is one of the smallest baseball parks in MLB with a nighttime capacity of 37,493. It’s famous for unique features such as The Triangle, a region of center field where the walls form a triangle. There’s also Pesky's Pole, a right field foul pole named after Johnny Pesky, the first American League player to score six runs in a nine-inning game. And then there’s the famous Green Monster, a left field wall that’s over 37 feet high—the highest one in Major League baseball.
Fenway Park has 33 grandstand sections, with sections 32 and 33 offering the best seats for families. Concessions of food and alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages can be found all over the stadium. The park has two official parking lots, and a number of garages and parking lots within a half-mile radius. You can explore the historic grounds of Fenway Park by taking a tour of the facility, which are offered daily during regular office hours.
