Best 100-Year-Old Baseball Park
The oldest active Major League field, Fenway Park turns 100 this season and has earned the right to be quirky. The 37-foot wall in left field (“the Green Monster”) is an artifact of the design constraints of the 1912 lot–likewise, the short right-field foul line that ends at Pesky’s Pole. A park tour is offered daily in season.

In the fabled Red Sox-Yankees rivalry, nothing can beat Beantown’s home field. Red Sox owners keep finding ways to keep baseball’s most historic—and best—park viable as it closes in on its 100th birthday in 2012. The infield was recently dug up and replanted for the first time since before World War I; in 2006, an extra thousand skybox seats were added above the luxury suites; this spring, a new standing deck above third base arrives. At a new capacity (with standing room) of 38,808, Fenway is still the smallest park in the major leagues, but good things come in small packages. To appreciate this shrine to America’s national pastime, take a ballpark tour—walk the field and touch the Green Monster, and look down on the diamond from the press box.
