"When they raze Fenway, it'll be like cutting down an old tree. Count the rings, there's one for each celebration and heartache suffered by Red Sox fans." (Dan Shaughnessy, Fenway: A Biography in Words and Pictures) No other ballpark has the feel and tradition of Fenway. Entering the grandstand, one is transported back through time as the spirits of all those who came before seem to inhabit the cozy confines. Built by Red Sox owner John I. Taylor, Fenway Park opened in the spring of 1912 (just days after the Titanic sank), making it the oldest ballpark in the major leagues. Although many changes have been made to Fenway over the years, the finely detailed brick facade that borders Yorky Way dates back to the first game played there. Remembering Fenway Park brilliantly and beautifully documents the stadium's entire career through a decade-by-decade account, a priceless collection of historical photographs, and, most movingly, the vivid, first-person reminiscences of the people to whom this great place has meant so much: entertainers and politicians, broadcasters and sportswriters, players and fans. No Red Sox fan - no baseball fan - will be able to resist this incredible book.
