Fenway Park, Boston, Massachusetts, USA
Since 1912, it has been the home for the Boston Red Sox, the city’s Major League Baseball (MLB) franchise. It is the oldest ballpark in MLB.Because of its age and constrained location in Boston’s dense Fenway–Kenmore neighborhood, the park has been renovated or expanded many times, resulting in quirky heterogeneous features including “The Triangle” (below), “Pesky’s Pole”, and the Green Monster in left fieldFenway Park is an historical iconic baseball park located in Boston, at 4 Yawkey Way near Kenmore Square. It is the fourth-smallest among MLB ballparks by seating capacity, second-smallest by total capacity, and one of eight that cannot accommodate at least 40,000 spectators.
