Wiki

"Every detail of Fenway Park is covered in this book . . .I am amazed at the research that must have gone into this.  . . This has got to be THE definitive work on this subject."
--Msyinglingreads.blogspot.com

"In the capable hands of Stout, it promises to make all other books about Fenway's construction and first season obsolete." --Sports Illustrated.com

"Fenway 1912 is a book that everyone who covers this team has to buy, and read, and keep handy, so that when people ask us where the bones are buried, we can look wise and have the answer at our fingertips."   -Boston Baseball


"This is a book for anyone who cares about the storied Boston Red Sox, about their 100-year-old bandbox of a stadium, about the remarkable championship season of 1912, about the street-level history of Boston, and about why baseball will forever be the all-American pastime. This is a book for all of us." – Larry Tye, author of SATCHEL: The Life and Times of an American Legend

"Glenn Stout has done the impossible: he has put an end to the seemingly bottomless genre that is Fenway Park books. We now need no more. We get not pomp and circumstance, but the bones and blueprint of a legendary ballpark — topped with a star-filled World Series that still endures. He doesn’t pretend history is straw hats and cigars, but gives you real people, real baseball and (the best part) real Boston, the way any real writer should." Howard Bryant, ESPN, and author of The Last Hero: A Life of Henry Aaron

review by . September 09, 2011
I spent a lot of time in Boston when my daughter was going to college and graduate school there, and got to know the place, and its many attractions, very well. Fenway Park was always something we could see from the Mass Pike, but only the Green Monster, so we resolved to get tickets to see a game there.      My daughter turned 21 during the summer, and as a birthday gift to her (and an anniversary gift for my wife and myself), her uncles got us tickets to a game at Fenway, but …
