Fenway Park

Filed under: Massachussetts, Stadiums

Fenway Park is the home ballpark of the Boston Red Sox baseball club.

Fenway Park opened on April 20, 1912, the same day as Tiger Stadium in Detroit. After that stadium closed in 1999, Fenway became the oldest ballpark still in active use in Major League Baseball.

It is located near, and named for, the Fenway neighborhood in the heart of Boston, Massachusetts, United States. It takes its name from a comment by former owner John I. Taylor: “It’s in the Fenway section of Boston, isn’t it? Then name it Fenway Park.”[2]

Fenway Park hosted the 1946, 1961, and 1999 Major League Baseball All-Star Games
