Locator Map

Fenway Park has served as the home ballpark of the Boston Red Sox baseball club since it opened in 1912 and is the oldest Major League Baseball stadium currently in use. It is one of two "classic" Major League ballparks still in use, the other being Chicago's Wrigley Field and it is considered to be one of the best-known sports venues in the United States.

The Red Sox have sold out every home game since May 15, 2003; in 2008, the park sold out its 456th consecutive Red Sox game, breaking a Major League Baseball record.
