Boston Red Sox Trivia Facts
It is hard to believe but, the Red Sox have always been in Fenway Park, it is home base to them and part of their history, and they are part of its history. Even when a fire destroyed a part of the left field line bleachers in 1926, they still used Fenway Park until it was reconstructed in 1933. But another fire almost destroyed all the park and they had to do the impossible to get it ready for the spring season 1934.
11 days before the official start of the 1912 season, the Red Sox played their first game against the Harvard Crimson. According to Harvard Magazine, conditions were terrible, as can happen early in a New England spring. The Red Sox won that day 2-0, and Harvard would play the Sox in pre-season matchups a few more times throughout the years. Today, the team generally faces off against Northeastern and Boston College during pre-season in Fort Myers.
The Red Sox, and more so Fenway Park, are famous for the massive, intimidating wall in left field — the Green Monster. Over the years, batters have attempted to hit home runs over the wall. The many missed attempts have left literally thousands of dents in the wall. According to a Boston Globe estimate, there are at least 211,000, with some spots being hit up to six times.
