David Hickey con Fenway Park (Images of America) (English Edition)
Five days after the sinking of the Titanic, Boston�s Fenway Park held its grand opening. Since that day, millions have witnessed the Red Sox play baseball. Their �Royal Rooters� evolved into the �Fenway Faithful� and are now commonly referred to as �Red Sox Nation.� Nine World Series have been staged upon Fenway�s turf, along with three Major League All-Star Games. Aside from baseball, Fenway has been host to professional and amateur football games, ice hockey, basketball, soccer, lacrosse, hurling, boxing and wrestling matches, and even a circus. Music from concerts has reverberated across its lawn, religious services have been held, and political rallies staged�all adding patches to the quilt of Fenway�s rich, illustrious history. The structure that noted author John Updike referred to many decades ago as �a lyric little band box� has become one of New England�s most beloved historical landmarks.
