Watch Fenway Park At 100 on KENW-TV at 9:00 p.m. on Monday, March 26th.
Fenway Park At 100 celebrates the centennial of the oldest (and smallest) ballpark in America. Using a Red Sox/Yankees game as a thread, the film tells the story of Fenway’s long history as a venue for sports and as a public space: masses for WWI soldiers, a 1922 Irish Republican rally, FDR’s last presidential campaign speech, concerts by Bruce Springsteen and others.
A decade ago, it looked as though Fenway would be largely destroyed and replaced with a new ballpark. Luckily, wiser heads prevailed and one of Boston’s most popular attractions, and a landmark for baseball fans everywhere, survived.
