Boston's most cherished landmark? Site of Boston's greatest dramas and worst defeats? To many Bostonians, it's not Bunker Hill or the Tea Party ship, but tiny old Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox. Built in 1912, Fenway Park is one of the last survivors of old-style baseball parks. Only Wrigley Field in Chicago rivals its legendary status.

Baseball at Fenway is special thanks to the unique shape of the park, the intimate playing field, and the one and only Green Monster, the famous towering left field wall that compensates for the relatively short distance from home plate. The Green Monster consistently alters the regular course of play - what appears to be a lazy fly ball could actually drop over the Monster for a home run, and what appears to be a sharp double into the gap may be played off the wall to hold the runner to a single.

The best way to experience Fenway Park is to watch a game, but tickets can be hard to come by. If you can't see a game, you can at least visit the park, where you can see the inside of the press box and the top of the Monster. And maybe, just maybe, you might get a chance to peak inside the wall, where anybody who's anybody in baseball has left their autograph.

Practical Info

Boston Red Sox baseball games are held from April to September. Tickets are hard to come by, but single seats and obstructed-view tickets are sometimes available during the week leading up to a game. First-come, first-served standing-room-only tickets are sold on game day; head to the ticket windows at Gate C.

Fenway Park is located just south of Kenmore Square, on Landsdowne Street. The park is easily accessible via the MBTA subway, or the T. Nearby attractions include the Museum of Fine Arts, MassArt, and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum
