Read full description of the books Fenway 1912: The Birth of a Ballpark, a Championship Season, and Fenway's Remarkable First Year:
In anticipation of the one hundredth anniversary of America’s most beloved ballpark, the untold story of how Fenway Park was born and the remarkable first season ever played there
For all that has been written in tribute to the great Fenway Park, no one has ever really told the behind-the-scenes true story of its tumultuous yet glorious first year. Nineteen twelve was a leap year, the year the Titanic sank, but also the year baseball’s original shrine was "born." And while the paint was still drying, the infield grass still coming in, the Red Sox embarked on an unlikely season that would culminate in a World Series battle against the Giants that stands as one of the greatest ever played.
Fenway 1912 tells the incredible story—and stories—of Fenway, from the unorthodox blueprint that belies the park’s notorious quirks, to the long winter when locals poured concrete and erected history, to the notorious fixers who then ruled the game, to the ragtag team who delivered a world championship, Fenway’s first.
Drawing on extensive new research, the esteemed baseball historian Glenn Stout delivers a rollicking tale of innovation, desperation, and perspiration, capturing Fenway as never before.
A Boston Glebe bestseller and the only book to win both the Seymour Medal as best best of biography or history and the Larry Ritter Awad as best book of the Deadball era by the Society for American Baseball Research
