Fenway Park is the most famous ballpark--and arguably stadium--in
all of sports. From the ominous Green Monster, to the notorious
cramped seats (including the lone red seat that marks Ted Williams"s
record-setting longest home run), to the hand-operated scoreboard (if
only those walls could talk), Fenway Park has inspired more lavish praise
and outrageous comparison than any American sports arena in history.
From the best-selling author Dan Shaughnessy and the two-time
Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Stan Grossfeld, Fenway is the
ultimate memorial to the beloved Boston ballpark. This expanded and
updated edition features a new foreword by Peter Gammons, updated
text throughout, including a new chapter on Fenway under the current
ownership, and more than thirty new photographs covering, among
other things, the 2004 World Series, the new Green Monster seats, the
reconstruction of the ".406 Club" for the 2006 season, and more.
