Happy birthday, Fenway!

You’re looking “SO GOOD! SO GOOD! SO GOOD!” for your age.

Today, Fenway Park turns 100 years old. It’s more than just the home of the Red Sox, it’s a spot that holds so many memories for so many people not only here in Massachusetts, but around the world. At Fenway, I’ve seen a lot of baseball games. I’ve seen the Sox win and lose there, but it’s always a magical experience.

I have a lot of amazing Fenway memories and moments, from seeing a couple clutch grand slams to every time I get to belt out “Sweet Caroline” in the bottom of the eighth. However, my absolute favorite Fenway moment was when I got to run the bases at the Futures at Fenway game. That one is pretty unbeatable.

Yesterday, the Red Sox opened Fenway to the public for the Fenway Open House, and I went with my dad and brother Walter.  We had a blast exploring the park, walking the warning track, and getting up close and personal with the Green Monster. It was a great day. I’ve got some pictures of our day below! :)

The open house was an amazing opportunity to see, touch, and experience the historic ballpark.

Pesky's pole!

The weather was perfect. Warm, sunny...the perfect spring day!

"I always wanted to do that!" Walter after he spit out of the dugout.

It was so much fun to spend the day with my dad and Walt! Especially since I don't see them all the time cause I'm at school.

I totally put my initials in the dirt.

We toured the visiting clubhouse, AKA where the Yankees are hanging out right now!

The Green Monster...up close and personal.

Smiles all around!

Of course I had to get a picture with the cutout of Jacoby!

Pretending to have my dream job in the press box!

Most pictures were taken by my dad, Chris!

We had an amazing day, and I just want to say a big THANK YOU to the Red Sox and Fenway Park for opening their gates to the fans and letting them explore their amazing home. Fenway is a true gem, and it’s looking amazing for 100 years. Here’s to the next century of awe-inspiring Boston baseball!

What’s your favorite Fenway moment? Share in the comments!

xoxo, Karoline

    Great blog post on our most beloved ball park! Happy Birthday Fenway. My favorite memory of Fenway was playing hookie from school and work and going on a tour. BTW…you look great in the press box.
