MLB 49 1580 Fenway Park's greatest moments 30926099 Fenway Park's greatest moments Fenway+Park%27s+greatest+moments MLB

Fenway Park in Boston has been the site of any number of triumphs and tragedies. After all, a place cannot house the Red Sox for a century without also housing every kind of drama imaginable. So as we all celebrate the 100th anniversary of what many think of as the best ballpark in the world, let's look back the greatest Fenway moments of all-time.

MLB 49 1580 Fenway Park's greatest moments 30924644 Carlton Fisk's home run Carlton+Fisk%27s+home+run MLB

Few images are more enduring than Fisk trying to wave it fair. Game 6 of 1975 World Series was a back-and-forth affair that lasted deep into the night of Oct. 21. Finally, in the 12th inning, Fisk landed the killing blow — a walk-off blast to deep left that just barely curled around the pole. The Red Sox lost the Series to the Reds, but they won what may have been the greatest game ever played.

MLB 49 1580 Fenway Park's greatest moments 30921079 Ted Williams’ final at bat Ted+Williams%26rsquo%3B+final+at+bat MLB

On Sept. 28, 1960, the legendary Ted Williams ended his career in stirring fashion. He homered in his final at-bat, and then, in a fashion that typified his complicated relationship with Boston, he refused to give the fans a curtain call. Never has one swing said so much about a player and a city.

MLB 49 1580 Fenway Park's greatest moments 30921080 Bucky Dent’s home run Bucky+Dent%26rsquo%3Bs+home+run MLB

While not a memory cherished by Sox fans, Dent’s home run, which put the Yankees on top in the one-game showdown on Oct. 2 to determine the 1978 AL East title, remains one of the most improbable ever. It took a later Reggie Jackson dinger to put the Sox away for good.

MLB 49 1580 Fenway Park's greatest moments 30921081 Dave Roberts’ steal Dave+Roberts%26rsquo%3B+steal MLB

On the verge of a humiliating sweep to the Yankees, pinch-runner Dave Roberts, in the ninth inning of Game 4 of the 2004 ALCS, took off running. He touched the second-base bag an instant ahead of Derek Jeter’s tag, and moments later he tied the score on a Bill Mueller single. The Sox won the game, which began on Oct. 17 and ended in the wee hours of Oct. 18, in the 12th and the series in seven.

On April 29, 1986, a young Texas fire-baller named Roger Clemens fanned 20 Seattle Mariners in a single game and in the process broke Nolan Ryan’s record. The new record would stand for 10 years until it was tied by … Roger Clemens.

Ted Williams, who had avoided returning to Fenway for decades, made an emotional return just prior to the 1999 All-Star Game on July 13. The sight of him mingling with the game’s greatest hitters will not soon be forgotten.

As of May 19, 2008, young Jon Lester had already beaten cancer, pitched the final game of the 2007 World Series, and narrowly avoided a trade to the Mets in exchange for Johan Santana. On that date, he added to his resume by holding the Royals hitless for the full nine innings. It was the 18th no-hitter in team history.

While the Curse of the Bambino has been laid to rest, it’s still been since 1918 that the Sox clinched a World Series in Fenway. That happened in Game 6, when submariner Carl Mays beat the Cubs 2-1, while also going 1-for-2 with a run scored.

Varitek was the workmanlike catcher for the Sox, and A-Rod was the pampered Yankee superstar. Or at least that’s how the narrative is supposed to go. However you wish to paint the characters, what unfolded on July 24, 2004, is often cited as the first step toward ending the Curse.

There's just something great about two iconic catchers for two iconic franchises coming to blows in the dust around home plate, which is what happened on Aug. 1, 1973. As the story goes, Munson hated Fisk because he got all the attention, and the New England-bred Fisk hated Munson because he was a Yankee.
