Extra stadium info – Fenway Park

The construction of the Fenway Park started in 1911. It is known as a venue for various events, like American football, baseball, boxing, concerts, football, Gaelic football, hurling, ice hockey, political events and religious gatherings. It is the oldest ballpark in Major League Baseball and it was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2012. The Green Monster is a popular nickname for the famous large green wall at the Fenway Park. The wall was not painted green until 1947. Before the wall was painted green, it was covered with advertisements.

The Boston Red Sox, one of the most famous baseball clubs in the world, have been tenants since its opening in 1912. They were founded in 1901 under a different name. The Boston Red Sox won the World Series various times. They have a famous rivalry with the New York Yankees. In 1968, the Fenway Park was one of the venues for the inaugural North American Soccer League season. The dissolved Boston Beacons used the stadium for their home games in their only NASL season, in which they finished below the Atlanta Chiefs, the Washington Whips, the New York Generals and the Baltimore Bays.
