If you are a sports fan, especially if you like baseball, Fenway Park is a must-see place before you die.
You can breathe history and greatness in this traditional baseball park, the home of the Boston Red Sox.
As it turns out, today is a special birthday: it turns 110!
It’s easy to say and write, but 110 years for a ballpark is a long time.
It is one of the oldest stadiums in MLB: it survived the entire 20th century, when most franchises either relocated to other parks or built new ones.
“Fenway Park turns 110 today. Here’s a photo from April 20, 1912,” MLB Cathedrals tweeted, with the fascinating picture.

The Oldest Park In MLB
Located in Boston, Massachusetts near Kenmore Square, it has been the home of the Red Sox since the year of its opening.
The Red Sox substantially rebuilt it in 1934, and have performed significant improvements and renovations recently, too.
Fenway Park is the oldest active park in Major League Baseball.
Fenway’s “Green Monster” is an attraction on its own: a giant, green wall that proves to be a challenge for hitters who want to homer to left field.
Other curious parts of the park are “The Triangle” and Pesky’s Pole, which is the right field foul pole.
A total of 11 World Series have been played in Fenway Park, and the Red Sox have won six of them.
The Boston Braves, a franchise that no longer exists with that name, won another one.
Fenway Park is not only a symbol of the city of Boston, but of MLB as a whole.
Everybody knows Fenway Park, and it’s one of the league’s main attractions.
