On April 20, 1912 - nearly 100 years ago - The Boston Red Sox played their first official game at Fenway Park. 27,000 fans were on hand to witness the Red Sox defeat the rival New York Highlanders-later known as the Yankees-7-6 in 11 innings. It was an event that may have made front page news in Boston had it not been for the sinking of the Titanic five days earlier. Since that day in 1912, the oddly-shaped stadium at 4 Yawkey Way has played host to nearly 8,000 Red Sox games including 55 in the postseason, launching the legends of Tris Speaker, Jimmie Foxx, Ted Williams, Carl Yazstzemski, Jim Rice, Wade Boggs, Roger Clemens, and Pedro Martinez, and making the ballpark a worldwide destination for legions of baseball fans in the process. From the Green Monster to Pesky's Pole, The Triangle to the lone red seat marking the longest home run ever hit in the stadium (a 502-foot blast off the bat of Ted Williams in 1946), Fenway Park is a stadium whose unique charms have captivated generations of sports fans. In "100 Years of Fenway Park", authors Bill Nowlin and Jim Prime tell, through vivid, full-color photos and illuminating prose, the story of one of the most cherished American stadiums, creating an endearing portrait of a building whose rich history resonates in the hearts and minds of the Red Sox vast fanbase. With a special foreword by Red Sox legend Carl Yazstrzsemski, this is a book that no Red Sox fan should be without.
