Fenway Park

Though generations have come and go, Fenway Park remains, much like it did the day it opened on April 20, 1912. Fenway Park is known for many things including being known as "America's most beloved ball park." There are many additional aspects that make Fenway Park arguably the best ball park in the world. These aspects include its amazing location in Boston, Massachusetts and its towering Green Monster wall that stands in left field.


Boston, Massachusetts is a beautiful city in the northeastern part of the U.S. It is home to many different teams and holds a numerous amount of events. Ultimately, it can be considered one of the greatest sports cities in the country.

The Green Monster that stands in left field at Fenway Park is more than just a wall to Red Sox fans. The Green Monster stands at thirty-two feet and two inches and is the only green outfield wall that high in the MLB. The reason for this high of a wall is due to the fact that Fenway Park only had so much space to fit its entire stadium. When in the process of being built, builders realized that left field would be cut off short because of the street in the left field. As a result, a relatively short 315 foot (length from home plate) wall was built.
