Bronze tribute outside Boston Fenway Park to the decades-long friendship of four legends: Ted Williams, Johnny Pesky, Bobby Doerr and Dom DiMaggio. The statue of the four teammates stands outside of Gate B at Fenway Park at the intersection of Ipswich and Van Ness streets.
The statue was made by Antonio Tobias Mendez and inspired by David Halberstam's book �The Teammates: A Portrait of a Friendship�. The book chronicles the automobile road trip Pesky and DiMaggio made to visit Williams in his final days. The statue's plaque states, in part:
"Red Sox teammates for seven seasons, but best friends for a lifetime. � They left an unmatched legacy in Red Sox history. � To Red Sox fans the world over, they are simply known as Bobby, Ted, Dom and Johnny."
The statue depicts the four members of the Red Sox Hall of Fame in 1946, the year they helped take Boston to the World Series.
