The perfect addition to the home, man cave, office, or waiting room for members of Red Sox Nation and fans of the great game of baseball.
This image from Fenway Park celebrates the Red Sox 1912 World Series championship over John McGraw's New york Giants. Boston won the best of seven game series in EIGHT games (yes, eight games) due to Game 5 ending in a tie. Boston won the deciding eigth game with a 2-run 10th inning rally, capitalizing on two New York fielding mistakes. The series featured the, future Hall of Famer Christy Matthewson for New York and fireballer Smoky Joe Wood for Boston. By 1918 the Boston had captured 5 World Series titles.
Fenway Park, the home of the Red Sox, opened its gates in 1912. Fitted into the Kenmore Square neighborhood, Fenway is know for its unique dimensions and features: the Green Monster looming in left field; the Pesky Pole down the right
field line, marking the shortest home run distance in the MLB; Williamsburg, the bullpen area added to right-center field in 1940 to aid Ted Williams and other Boston lefties in hitting home runs; the Triangle in center field, marking the longest distance from home plate at 420 feet. Fenway memories endure in the hearts and minds of Red Sox Nation and baseball fans alike--from Ted Williams final at bat to
Carlton Fisk's dramatic home run in Game 6 of the 1975 World Series to the final out of Boston's championship run in the 2013 World Series.
