Fenway Park, located near Kenmore Square of Boston, MA
, is the city’s oldest baseball stadium. The Boston Red Sox, the city's American League baseball team since 1912, and its sole Major League Baseball (MLB) franchise since 1953, have called it home. The park was constructed and named in 1911 by Red Sox owner John I. Taylor, who was desperately in search of a new site for the Red Sox team instead of the formerly leased Huntington Avenue Ground. It was designed by the great architect, James McLaughlin, finished in April 1912, and was given the name Fenway Park from its position in Boston's "Fens." Through multi-million renovation over the years, the Fenway park has amazingly hosted every home game of the Boston Red Sox since 1993 which is always graced by thousands of passionate fans.
The park boasts numerous odd characteristics and is confined in the busy Ken-more area of Boston. Fenway Park which is America's most cherished ballpark is known for hosting the famed MLB World Series for about 11 times.
