Boston’s literary and cultural history may be rich, but for many Bostonians, the real historical treasure of this town is the Red Sox, whose baseball stadium just so happens to be the oldest in America. Indeed, the history of Fenway Park and the Red Sox is the stuff of legends: Babe Ruth’s “curse,” Ted William’s spectacular home run well into the right-field bleachers, the Red Sox 2004 comeback against the Yankees to win the American League Championship en route to their first World Series victory in nearly a century. It’s a magical place. New Englander and writer John Updike describes Fenway Park the best in the opening of his story about seeing Ted Williams’s last game at Fenway, calling the stadium “a lyric little bandbox of a ballpark,” offering “a compromise between Man’s Euclidean determinations and Nature’s beguiling irregularities.”
