Description

A historical place for the Red Sox

Fenway Park is the famous home stadium of the Red Sox, the Boston major league baseball team. The stadium was built back in 1912 and is one of the oldest baseball stadiums, which is still in use today and has meanwhile been listed as a US-national historical place. Its old structure displays certain architectural characteristics. Different to modern stadiums, which are designed for commercial purposes only, this stadium contains seats which one cannot see the entire stadium from. These seats used to belong to the cheapest category of seats available.

The Green Monster

The wall, placed at the left sidelines, is very special. It was originally made of wood, painted green and carried a manually-operated scoreboard. This is why it was named “The Green Monster” which was also an inspiration for the Red Sox mascot's choice of name.

The lonely red seat

On one side of the stands, one can still find the former wooden chairs, giving the stadium its special charm. In the back row, visitors may spot the “lonely red seat”, marking the point the longest home run in the stadium.

The stadium is also used for other sport events, such as ice hockey and football games. 

How to get there

By subway

You may take the red line and get off at “Park St.”. If you use the blue line, get off at “Government Center”.

By bus

The following bus lines will all pass the stadium: 1, 8, 19, 47, 55, 57, 60, or 65. It doesn't matter which of these lines you take as long as you get off at “Brookline Avenue” or “Yawkey Way”.
