One of baseball's last remaining links to its past, Fenway Park still brings fans to the game as it was in the early 1900s. With its unusual configurations and the proximity of the stands to the players, the park serves as an intimate connection between the fans their beloved team. Here we see the park shortly after it opened in 1912, the same week that the Titanic sunk on its maiden voyage. In its early years, the Park saw great teams consistently play important games. In fact, the Boston Braves played their home World Series games there in 1914, because Fenway sat more fans than their own stadium. Ironically, the next year, the Sox won the American League Pennant and played their home World Series games at the just-completed Braves Field, about one mile away. The reason? It sat more fans!
