A Day at Fenway

                               

One of our employees was in Boston this weekend and was lucky enough to visit Fenway Park for the first time. Wow, what a great experience and an amazing stadium! Below are some photos of the stadium, along with some interesting facts about Fenway Park.

                               

                               

Fenway has one of the last hand-operated scoreboards in major league baseball.  It was great to watch them change the score by hand! 

                              

The halls of the EMC Level were lined with framed Mitchell & Ness Authentic Red Sox jerseys!     

                              

                                    

Of course they have our Babe Ruth pinstripe 1918 Red Sox Road Jersey on display! Babe Ruth hit the first homerun in All-Star history at Fenway Park.

                                    

Fenway Park was constructed in 1912 and was named by then Red Sox owner John I. Taylor. Taylor said, "It's in the Fenway section of Boston, isn't it? Then call it Fenway Park."

The first major league game was played at Fenway on April 20, 1912, just a few days after the Titanic sank.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt delivered his final campaign speech at Fenway Park in November of 1944.

The Green Monster wasn't always green. It was painted green in 1947; before that it was covered with advertisements.
