Fenway Park is the home of the Boston Red Sox, the city’s American League (AL) baseball team. It is the oldest and most famous ballpark in Major League Baseball, having opened in 1912.
Owner John I. Taylor bought the land bound by Brookline Avenue, Jersey Street, Van Ness Street, and Lansdowne Street in 1911, while the Red Sox were still playing on the old Huntington Avenue Grounds, and converted it into Fenway Park, a larger baseball stadium.
Fenway Park was named after its location in Boston’s Fenway area, which was partially developed late in the nineteenth century by filling in marshland or “fens” to create the Back Bay Fens urban stadium.
The Red Sox have won six World Series games at Fenway Park, while the Boston Braves have won one. It has hosted a variety of sporting and cultural events, including professional football games for the Boston Redskins, Boston Yanks, and New England Patriots; concerts; soccer and hockey games and political and religious initiatives.
Boston defeated the New York Highlanders 7–6 in 11 innings in the first game, which was played on April 20, 1912. Mayor John F. Fitzgerald threw out the first pitch. The opening was overshadowed in the newspapers by continued coverage of the Titanic’s tragedy a few days prior.
Fenway Sports Group Holdings, LLC (FSG) is the utmost parent corporation of the Boston Red Sox of Major League Baseball, Liverpool F.C. of the Premier League, and the Pittsburgh Penguins of the National Hockey League.
The stadium has a capacity of 37305 during Day time and 37755.
