Fenway 1912: The Birth of a Ballpark, a Championship Season, and Fenway's Remarkable First Year
A 2012 TOP TEN Sports Book of the Year, Booklist.SEYMOUR MEDAL winner, "Best Baseball Book of History or Biography 2011", and 2011 LARRY RITTER AWARD winner "Best book of the Deadball Era" - The Society for American Baseball Research.A BOSTON GLOBE bestseller.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 birth, construction, and tumultuous yet glorious first season - 1912. While the paint was still drying and the infield still turning green, the Red Sox embarked on an unlikely season that would culminate in a World Series battle against John McGraw's mighty Giants that stands as one of the greatest ever played. Fenway Park made all the difference, helping to turn an average team into the greatest in Red Sox history.Fenway 1912 tells the incredible story--and stories--of Fenway, from the architect whose creativity has helped Fenway Park remain relevant, to the long winter when local laborers 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, featuring never before seen blueprints, esteemed baseball historian Glenn Stout delivers a remarkable story of innovation, desperation, and perspiration, capturing Fenway Park as no other author ever has.
