This is a lovingly drawn portrait, in photographs and text, of Boston's fabled Fenway Park. The home field of the Boston Red Sox, Fenway was built in 1912 and is the oldest major league stadium in use today. It has seen the exploits of baseball greats from early heroes like Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb, and Shoeless Joe Jackson to the golden age of Ted Williams, Mickey Mantle, and the DiMaggio brothers, Dom and Joe, right up to today's current crop of superstars. Celebrating the park itself, and especially the quirkiness that has endeared it to the hearts of millions of baseball fans for three generations, Fenway Saved features interviews, essays, and the unique, never-before-published photographs of Mike Ross. Plans are underway to replace Fenway Park. This book helps to, in one sense, save Fenway for those who have enjoyed, even loved it, these many years.
