ABOUT FENWAY PARK...
Fenway is the oldest and most intimate ballpark in the majors. When we travel there on our baseball tours, we love taking the fantastic stadium tour. Most fans will tell you that they love being able to walk out on to Yawkey Way during the game to see all the special street banners, vendors, and gift shops.

- No player has ever hit a home run over the right-field roof at Fenway Park.
- The screen behind Fenway's home plate that protects fans and allows foul balls to roll back down onto the field was the first of its kind in the Major Leagues.
- In 1945, a throw by Athletics outfielder Hal Peck hit a pigeon flying over Fenway Park. The ball then deflected to the A's second baseman, who tagged out Boston's Skeeter Newsome trying to stretch his hit into a double. The pigeon flew away, minus a few feathers but otherwise unharmed.
- Another pigeon was not so lucky in 1974. Willie Horton hit a foul ball into the air at Fenway Park, hitting a low-flying pigeon. The pigeon fell from the sky - dead - and landed in front of home plate.
