Abstract:

On April 20, 1912, The Boston Red Sox played their first official game at Fenway Park. 27,000 fans were on hand to witness the Red Sox defeat the rival New York Highlanders?later known as the Yankees?7?6 in 11 innings.

Since that day, the oddly-shaped stadium at 4 Yawkey Way has played host to nearly 8,000 Red Sox games, including fifty-five in the postseason, launching the legends of Tris Speaker, Jimmie Foxx, Ted Williams, Carl Yastrzemski, Jim Rice, Wad.
