Here’s a freebie for savvy Red Sox fans – celebrate the 100th Anniversary of Fenway Park at the Fenway Park Open House on April 19, 2012. The event is free. You’ll have chance to get autographs, and wander around parts of the park that are usually off limits to the public, like the clubhouse, the warning track, Pesky’s Pole, and the Green Monster scoreboard. The new “Fenway Park: A Living Museum” tells the story of the ballpark, featuring 100 plaques, artifacts displays and historical markers.
Displays of artifacts include “Fenway And the Greatest Generation,” which tells the active participation of Red Sox players in the military; “Live at Fenway” and “Filmed at Fenway,” which tell the stories of concerts that have taken place at the ballpark along with movies that have been shot within its confines. Historical markers denote historic home runs, events, and spots within the park.
