Overview

The oldest park in the major leagues, the last of the old-timey baseball theaters, Fenway Park has inspired more lavish praise and outrageous comparisons than any other American sports arena. And to think, it was almost lost.

In this glistening new edition of their classic pictorial tribute, best-selling author Dan Shaughnessy and Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Stan Grossfeld have both preserved the Fenway of our childhood memories and captured the magic and mania of the Fenway of today. From the landmark Green Monster, the lone red seat marking Ted Williams's longest home run, and the hand-operated scoreboard, to the coveted new seats perched atop the Wall and the circus atmosphere of Yawkey Way, Fenway Park is the best blend of old and new. In these pages this quintessential American-ballpark experience is lovingly illustrated and detailed.

Featuring more than sixty new color photographs, with added chapters on the historic 2004 World Series victory and recent ballpark renovations, Fenway: A Biography in Words and Pictures also boasts a new foreword by Leigh Montville and additional recollections from famous players, coaches, and illustrious fans—Yo-Yo Ma, Tim Russert, Senator Edward Kennedy, among others.

Like a walk-off homer on a starlit New England summer night, Fenway is sure to thrill a whole new generation of fans.
