Fenway Park is one of the three existing classic baseball parks in major league baseball. Only Wrigley Field and Yankee Stadium fall into the same category as being baseball’s most historic grounds. Wrigley is the only park to still have a great number of obstructed view seats (eg. from pillars supporting the higher seating areas.
The stadium is best known for the left field wall called the “Green Monster”. Constructed in 1934, the wall is 240 feet long, has a 22-foot deep foundation, and was constructed from 30,000 pounds of Toncan iron.
Fenway Park is generally considered to be one of the best-known sports venues in the world. In 1990, the stadium became the oldest used by a pro sports team in the USA, when Comiskey Park was demolished.
