BOSTON--In Major League Baseball, there are few shrines more beloved than Fenway Park, the home of the Boston Red Sox since 1912. The park opened on April 20, 1912, with a game against the New York Highlanders, in front of 27,000 fans.
The park may be most famous for its "Green Monster," the 37-foot-high left field wall, and its hand-operated scoreboard.
As part of Road Trip 2010, CNET reporter Daniel Terdiman got a chance to visit the park and peek behind the curtain at many of Fenway's most sacred spots.
A view out onto the field from inside the Red Sox dugout. One can imagine Red Sox greats watching many of the game's most famous moments from this spot, including Carlton Fisk's dramatic 12th-inning home run in Game 6 of the 1975 World Series.
Because the scoreboard on the Green Monster is hand-operated, all the numbers must be placed manually. That means there are holes and slats along the wall. Here, it is possible to see the field from through one of the slats.
