What is the Green Monster and where can you find? Or how about the Pesky Pole? If you're a baseball fan or live anywhere in the Northwest, the answers immediately spring to mind. You'll find them both at fabled Fenway Park in Boston, Massachusetts.

Just in time to celebrate the centennial of its opening day comes "F is for Fenway: America's Oldest Major Leage Ballpark," an alphabetical tribute to the home of the Boston Red Sox team. From the ceremonial first pitch thrown on April 20, 1912, by Mayor John Fitzgerald (grandfather of President John F. Kennedy), Fenway Park was destined for amazing moments in baseball history.

Baseball fans young and old will enjoy reading about the park's history, features, and momentous events, including famous home runs from luminaries such as Ted Williams and Carlton Fisk. And, as the oldest major league ballpark still in use, Fenway still has more history to make.
