Fenway Park opened in 1912 and is the oldest ballpark in the major leagues. Known for its Green Monster, a 37-foot-high wall that extends straight from left field to center field, Fenway Park has one of the last hand-operated scoreboards in baseball in the left-field wall. Green and red lights are used to signal balls, strikes and outs. The Red Sox added 269 new seats atop The Monster for the 2003 season.
Soak up the scene:
The seats are cramped, the facilities ancient and the tickets are some of the most expensive in baseball. Now that that's out of the way, every baseball fan should make it to Fenway at least once. This oldest park in the Majors is a living museum to America's pastime and home to the best team in baseball in the new century. And right outside the door are some great sports bars.
