Boston Red Sox
Located in downtown Boston, Fenway park is the historic home field to Major League Baseball’s Boston Red Sox.
The Red Sox have played at the field since 1912, making it the oldest professional baseball field currently in use by a Major League Baseball franchise.
Due to its age, the park has gone under renovations many times throughout its history, including additions like “The Triangle”, “Pesky’s Pole”, and the Green Monster in left field.
Besides baseball, the stadium has also hosted a number of other major sporting events throughout its time such as football games for the old Boston Redskins, Boston Patriots, and Boston Yanks, as well as countless more music entertainment events.
