She sure looks good, doesn’t she? Happy 111th birthday to beautiful and historic Fenway Park. It is the church of MLB. It’s a shrine to baseball, and the country’s oldest active ballpark. Fenway Park is even in the National Register of Historic Places.
The opening of our favorite park back in 1912 was meant to be a huge event in the city of Boston. However, it was largely overshadowed by a far more tragic event, the sinking of the Titantic. We love our park for all it’s quirks and oddities that drive visiting teams crazy. There’s the Green Monster, and “the Triangle.” And frankly, although uncomfortable, most of us “church-goers” prefer it that way!
Fenway Park is much more than a ballpark. It’s a symbol of Boston. It’s a testament that if you take care of yourself, you live a long and beautiful life. Friendly Fenway is place you can actually feel the past all around you. From Pesky’s pole to the lone red seat, where Ted Williams hit a history making 502-foot home run on June 9, 1946. If you ever get the chance to catch a game, a concert or an event at Fenway Park, don’t pass it up. It’s glorious.
Happy 111th birthday beautiful Fenway! You’ve come a long way, baby!
On April 20, 1912, Fenway Park opened its gates for the very first time. Boston Red Sox fans queued up outside the stadium, eager to see their team play on a field that would earn a reputation as one of the most iconic and beloved ballparks in the world. pic.twitter.com/OHDQ8K2cR1— BostonAttitude (@BostonAttitude) April 20, 2023
