David OshinskyAs a picture book, Fenway Park: 100 Years is truly special. The photos reveal everything from the maturation of the ballpark (the Green Monster, for example, wasn't green until 1947) to the decline of the national dress code (almost every male fan before the 1960s seems to have worn a suit and tie and a dress hat to the game). There are great spreads on the Ted Williams era; the "Miracle of '67" team, anchored by Carl Yastrzemski; the Carlton Fisk home run that clanged off the left-field foul pole in 1975; and, of course, the World Series victories of 2004 and 2007.
