Fenway Park

You might know that Fenway Park is one of the oldest and most historic baseball parks in the world. It was made in 1912 when Babe Ruth was still playing with the Red Sox.  Many things have happened there like when Ted williams hit a record 521 foot home run.   The seat he hit was half way up the bleachers and it is now painted red in honor of that home run.  Fenway Park has hosted 11 world series and many more events.  This year it even hosted a National Hockey League game on New Year’s Day!

  1. I am so impressed with your blogging every day! Thanks for your Fenway Facts! It is such a great place to see a ball game. Another great historical ballpark is Wrigley Field in Chicago. I went there a few years ago and it reminded me so much of Fenway. It was about the same size, had the history and was located smack in the middle of a city, like Fenway.
    By the way, I met your Dad last night in person for the first time. He was listening all night to our compliments on your blog. I think he’s jealous that more people read your blogs than his 🙂

  2. Wow! I didn’t know that. Cool.

  3. That is very interesting! I have only been to Boston one time and just saw Fenway as we drove by. It looks like a very cool place. I hope I can come back to New England soon. There is so much to see and so much history. I am from Memphis, TN and the closest cities with MLB teams are Atlanta and St. Louis. We have a AAA team called the Redbirds.

  4. Wow! 521 feet sounds like a long way. I had to put it into Google to find out how far that was in metres – nearly 159m, it is a long way!

    I wonder why some people use feet to measure and others use metres? Or miles instead of kilometres?

  5. Cool, I didn’t know this either and I grew up next to the place. I was just reading through your blog and must say: very nice job. 🙂
