Synopsis

No other ballpark has the feel and tradition of Fenway. Entering the grandstand, one is transported back through time as the spirits of all those who came before seem to inhabit the cozy confines. Built by Red Sox owner John I. Taylor, Fenway Park opened in the spring of 1912, making it the oldest ballpark in the major leagues. Remembering Fenway Park beautifully documents the stadium’s entire career through a decade-by-decade account, a priceless collection of historical photographs, and vivid, first-person reminiscences of the people to whom this great place has meant so much: journalists, players, and fans. No Red Sox fan—no baseball fan—will resist this incredible book.

Praise for Remembering Fenway Park:

"Remembering has everything a fan could want: iconic images, funny stories, and a sense of reverence." -The Boston Globe 

"
Historian Harvey Frommer (who also did a fine retrospective on Yankee Stadium) has used Fenway as a virtual cutaway of baseball history for 99 years with scores of former Red Sox-everyone from Jim Piersall to Pumpsie Green (the Red Sox's first black player) to Carl Yastrzemski to 'Spaceman' Bill Lee contributed their memories, as well as opponents such as Brooks Robinson, who steps in with timely pinch hits. The text is crisp, and the photos, both black-and-white and color, simply gorgeous. (My favorite: the three DiMaggio brothers, Vince, Dom and Joe, taken in 1986.) A great book even for those who hate the Red Sox."
 -The Dallas Morning News

"Daringly organized as a mosaic of Red Sox Nation, Remembering Fenway Park glitters with fond memories and delightful surprises. Anyone who has ever sat in Fenway, or longs to, will love this book. In his sure hands with oral history, Harvey Frommer is a treasure of our national pastime."
 -John Thorn, Official Historian for Major League Baseball 

"Fascinating" 
-Northeast Public Radio 

"[This] handsome coffee table book marks the centenary of the grand old park."
 -Sports Illustrated.com 

"Gem of a book about a jewel of a ballpark" 
-George Will 

"Worthy of its sacred subject . . . Unforgettable." 
-Dan Shaughnessy, Boston Globe
