At 101 years of age, Fenway Park remains one of the most vibrant places in baseball and Boston history. Perhaps it should not be written (for anything might jinx sports teams in this town) but since it has repeatedly been said by others, there is currently the opportunity for the first Red Sox World Series to be won in the Park since 1918; the more recent Red Sox wins in 2004 and 2007 were done on the road.
Fenway Park is the oldest park still being used in professional baseball. Even with seats added over the years, it still has the fourth lowest seating capacity of any park in the Major Leagues. This means that pretty much any seat is perfect to view a game, and even if the game is less than stellar, the crowd, a quirky mix of Boston locals and fans from all over New England, will no doubt entertain. Things to admire and look for at Fenway include the Green Monster, the red seat in the bleachers (Section 42, Row 37, Seat 21) which marks the spot of the longest home run ever hit at Fenway, hit by Ted Williams on June 9, 1946.
Tickets to game six or game seven (if there is a game seven) of the 2013 World Series are prohibitively expensive for most, but seeing a game at the park at any time is worthwhile, and for anyone in town when a game is not taking place the Red Sox offer guided tours.
