Located at 4 Yawkey Way in Boston, construction of Fenway Park began on Sept. 25, 1911. Construction continued into the early months of 1912, and Fenway hosted its first baseball game on April 9. That game was an exhibition between the Red Sox and Harvard College. Eleven days later, the Red Sox played their first official game at the park against the New York Highlanders. Boston went on to win the American League pennant and the World Series that season.

In true New England hospitality fashion, the Red Sox shared Fenway Park with their crosstown rivals, the National League's Boston Braves, in 1914 and '15. Once Braves Field was completed, the Red Sox reclaimed their home as their own.

Despite the popularity of the Red Sox, Fenway Park had the smallest seating capacity in the major leagues before 2008. Although renovations have bumped the official capacity up to 37,493, Fenway is still one of the smallest parks in terms of seating capacity.

Much like its cast of sometimes strange characters on the field, Fenway Park features a few quirks of its own. Built into the dense Fenway-Kenmore neighborhood, Fenway's renovations are limited to a constrained location. The most notable feature of Fenway Park is the left-field wall, dubbed "The Green Monster." Standing at more than 37 feet tall, the Monster is only 310-315 feet from home plate, depending on the source you believe. Other park eccentricities include "The Triangle" in right-center field and "Pesky's Pole" down the right-field line, named for longtime Red Sox player and coach Johnny Pesky (pictured, middle).

No tale about the Red Sox or their home would be complete without the mention of Boston's biggest rival, the New York Yankees. The two squads have met more than 2,000 times, with the series at 1,132–954–14 in the Yankees' favor. There have been numerous brawls at both homes, but perhaps the most famous in recent history came in 2003. In the 2003 American League Championship Series, the benches cleared after a couple of inside pitches angered both sides. Yankees bench coach Don Zimmer, then 72, charged Red Sox pitcher Pedro Martinez, who, in turn, threw the coach to the ground.

The Red Sox boast the third-most World Series championships of any American League club, with seven, trailing the Yankees (27) and Athletics (nine). The Red Sox enjoyed loads of success early in the 1900s, winning five titles from 1903 to '18. Boston fell victim to one of the biggest championship droughts in baseball history, however, going 86 years without a World Series title. In 2004, the Red Sox snapped the so-called "Curse of the Bambino," winning their sixth title. They snagged their most recent World Series triumph in 2007.

Renovations to "America's Most Beloved Ballpark" continued all the way through 2011. The Red Sox added state-of-the-art, high-definition video display and scoring systems, upgrades to the concourse (including new and extended concession areas) and upgrades to the lower seating bowl in right. The 2011 improvements marked the end of a 10-year commitment to renovating Fenway, just in time to celebrate its 100th anniversary.

At 100, Fenway is one of only two parks to be considered "classic" parks still in use. The other, Wrigley Field, serves as home to the Chicago Cubs. Fenway's century of use makes it the oldest venue used by a professional sports team in the United States since Chicago's original Comiskey Park was razed in 1991.
