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 1915 World Series championship over the Philadelphia Phillies. Boston won the best of seven game series in four games to one, reeling off four consecutive wins following Philadelphia's Game 1 victory. Boston played its home games at the much larger Braves Field to capitalize on demand for tickets. Boston's dominant pitching staff relegated the young Babe Ruth to the bench. The Babe made one pinch-hit appearance in the series. It would be 65 years before Philadelphia appeared in another World Series. 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.
