Fenway Park

Fenway Park (Fenway Park, Fenway Park) is a baseball stadium in Boston, the home arena of the Boston Red Sox team and the oldest ball park in Major League Baseball. It is also known as “America’s Favorite Stadium”, “Boston Cathedral” and “Friendly Fenway”.

At the beginning of the twentieth century, baseball was rapidly gaining popularity in the United States, and the Red Sox were one of the best teams, with more and more spectators coming to the games. Baseball players from Boston then played at a stadium called Huntington Avenue Baseball Grounds, it was there that the games of the first “World Series” (baseball championship finals) were held in 1903 and in 1904 the legendary pitcher Cy Young managed to hold the first “perfect match” in baseball history (not let no opposing players go to first base). Nevertheless, the stands of the existing stadium did not accommodate everyone, and in 1911 the then owner of the team, John Taylor, began construction of a new sports arena in the Fenway area of ​​Boston.

The first game in the new stadium (capacity of 35,000 fans) was played on April 20, 1912 between the Boston Red Sox and the New York Highlanders (modern-day New York Yankees). Since then, the stadium has been repeatedly repaired (including after a strong fire in the winter of 1934) and modernized: its capacity has changed (now it exceeds thirty-seven thousand spectators), lighting fixtures were installed for evening matches and a drainage system to drain the field, stands were rebuilt, new scoreboards and video screens were installed.

Fenway Park has hosted eleven MLB “World Series” games. In recent years, more than three million spectators visit the stadium during the season, almost completely filling the stands at every game of the Boston Red Sox. In addition to Major League Baseball competitions, minor league and college baseball meetings are held here.

For more than a century of history, Fenway Park has developed its own traditions and has its own relics. So, for example, in the stands of the stadium, among the numerous rows of green seats, you can see one red one. This is the “Lone Red Seat” (Lone Red Seat), the hat of a fan sitting on it in 1946 was hit by a ball knocked out by the legendary Red Sox player Ted Williams. The hit is considered the farthest home run in Fenway Park history, and the red color of the seat commemorates the event. In honor of Williams was named “Wilmsburg” (Williamsburg) – pitcher’s warm-up ground, built in 1940.

Also known are “Mast Sands” (Pesky’s Pole) – named after Johnny Pesky, who played in the Boston team in the forties and fifties of the XX century, marks the right border of the playing field; “Triangle” (The Triangle) – “protrusion” of the stands in the center of the field and some other features of the stadium.

But Fenway Park’s most famous attraction is without a doubt the Green Monster. This is the name of a part of the stadium fencing, a wall more than eleven meters high, which is a very strong obstacle to long-range batters and thus prevents home runs (for which it received its nickname). The “Green Monster” is the tallest obstacle of its kind in any MLB arena and largely defines the game at Fenway Park.

In 1934, a manually changed scoreboard was added to the Green Monster, which is still in use today. In 1936, a net was stretched over the wall to protect shop windows on the adjacent street from flying out of the stadium, and in 2003, seats for spectators were installed instead (immediately becoming extremely popular with Red Sox fans ).

Fenway Park’s mascot, Wally the Green Monster, is also named after the famous wall.

In addition to baseball games, Fenway Park hosts hockey, American and “European” football competitions; religious events (conventions of Jehovah’s Witnesses); concerts (Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles, Bruce Springsteen, Roger Waters, Paul McCartney and other equally famous musicians performed here); a variety of corporate and private events and even wedding ceremonies.

Today, Fenway Park is one of the smallest and, due to its outdated design, to some extent even inconvenient MLB stadiums. The columns supporting the upper tier of the stands limit the view, the size of the playing field and the architecture of the enclosing structures determine the specifics of the game at the Boston Ballpark. Yet Fenway Park, which celebrated its centenary in 2012 and is listed on the US National Register of Historic Places, remains a current American sports legend.
