Fenway Park – Boston Red Sox

Fenway Park is the home of the Boston Red Socks, one of the most prominent Major League Baseball teams. The Red Sox entered the American League in 1901 and had a 79-57 record that year. Since then, the Sox have gone on to win 13 World Series, with the first win being in 1903. Some of the most famous Boston Red Sox players include Babe Ruth, David Ortiz, and Bobby Doerr. Besides being famous for their top-notch baseball program, the Boston Red Sox are also known for their stadium, Fenway Park. In 1912, Red Sox owner John Taylor finished construction on Fenway Park. Fenway Park had a maximum capacity of 27,000 fans at the time, but in 1926, a renovation increased Fenway Park’s seating capacity to 33,817. This renovation also added the Green Monster, a 37 ft high dark green wall that became an iconic feature of Fenway Park. Over the next several decades, there were very few changes to Fenway Park. However, in 2004, it underwent an expansion which raised the seating capacity to 38,000.
