While in Boston recently, we took a tour of Fenway Park, which is equal parts sports venue and museum. Celebrating its 100th anniversary, Fenway Park is the oldest surviving Major League ball park in the US. Built in 1912, it is two years older than Wrigley Field in Chicago. The third oldest ball park in the US is Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, constructed over half a century later in 1967.
That great age comes with a price. For example, we got to see the view from the expensive seats behind home plate, 20 rows back:
Tucked away in a visitor’s center is the most impressive display at Fenway Park: an incredible, priceless, one-of-a-kind collection of baseballs, each signed by all of the players on the team from every year since the early part of the 20th century.
