Fenway Park:The Centennial: 100 Years of Red Sox Baseball by Saul Wisnia

Description

Honoring the 100th anniversary of Fenway Park, this is a nostalgic and reverent look at America’s # 1 baseball shrine–the national treasure that has been home to more than 600 straight sellouts and some of baseball's greatest games and players over the last century

Relive 100 years of memories in Fenway Park with this monumental book-with an original DVD documentary hosted by Carlton Fisk.

With supreme photography, a wealth of memorabilia, and original commentary by three generations of Boston Red Sox players and fans, this book celebrates the stadium in style. It also includes treasures from the Sports Museum of New England—rarely seen photographs and artifacts—that enhance the nostalgic experience.

FENWAY PARK: THE CENTENNIAL is a visually stunning and thoroughly engaging celebration of this great monument and its 100 year history.

Packed with original essays, commentary and history, this landmark book includes sections on:
• The inception, construction, and early years of Fenway Park
• Detailed looks at Red Sox legends from Babe Ruth and Ted Williams to Pedro Martinez and David Ortiz
• The greatest moments of the Green Monster, Fenway’s most famous feature
• A trip inside the Monster’s manually operated scoreboard
• Fenway fans and their love affair with the legendary stadium through the years
• Unforgettable seasons, including the Impossible Dream team and the 2004 World Series champs
