Did you know?

As we travel from one Major League Baseball stadium to the next, we are really enjoying how each stadium is completely different and has its own character, history, and architecture. Here are a few of the unusual facts about Fenway Park that we found especially interesting.

Facts Unique to
Fenway Park


HISTORY OF THE NAME

  • Constructed for the 1912 season and was named by then Red Sox owner John I. Taylor. He said, “It’s in the Fenway section of Boston, isn’t it? Then call it Fenway Park.”

STATS

  • Capacity: 37,493 fans
  • Mascot:
    Wally the green monster
  • Stadium opened on April 20, 1912

Fenway Farms

In the spring of 2015, Fenway Farms was planted, a rooftop garden on the third base side of the ballpark, above Yawkey Way. Produce and herbs grown in “Fenway Farms,” presented by Stop & Shop, Dole, Sage Fruit, and Fenway Park concessionaire Aramark, will be used in food products prepared at the ballpark this season, including the restaurant in the EMC Club.

Fenway Farms is sited on a 5,000 square foot roof above the Red Sox Front Offices. Previously an underutilized black rubber membrane roof, the space will now be used much more productively with an estimated 4,000 pounds of produce harvested annually.

Environmental Benefits of Fenway Farms include:
-Improved air quality
-Energy conservation through improved thermal performance
-Moderation of urban heat island effect
-Storm water amelioration

Our Reflections on the Game

Advice and reflections from the Glanville Team

Thoughts from James


I love the big green monster! This place is iconic and historic. Lots of brick and green. The aisles are tight and the seats are small – it makes me know what it was like to watch baseball decades ago.James

Christie’s Thoughts

This is a good ole American Ballpark! Tight rows and small seats and limited leg room = meet your neighbors! Everyone at Fenway is friendly and into the game! Passing beers and money down the rows, standing in long lines to get in, is all part of the experience here!Christie
