- What is America's Most Beloved Ballpark?
- Where do you go to see the 'Green Monster'?
- Which major league baseball park boasts of 713+ consecutive sellout games?
Know the answer?
Fenway Park, of course! Home of the Red Soxs! The oldest major league baseball park still in use today.
If you are a Red Sox fan you need to buy a copy of F is for Fenway!! Yes, NEED.
F is for Fenway is an alphabet book for kids, grown-ups, and baseball lovers everywhere. Each letter of the alphabet begins a short rhyme about a special Fenway feature.
Also included on each page is a sidebar with additional facts related to the rhyme and colorful, engaging illustrations.
Here's one of my favorite pages:
Just above this image the text says,
G is for Green MonsterThe Monster challenges right-handed hitters,and gives the pitching staff the jitters.You never know where the ball may fallwhen you are up against the wall.
We received this book several weeks ago and my oldest son (9 yrs) POURED over it. He read all of the side bar facts. He studied the pictures. He basically memorized the book.
And then last Thursday, Will and my husband went to Fenway Park.

Does that look familiar?!
I LOVE it when books come to life. LOVE. IT.
My husband said Will peppered him with Fenway Facts all night. Like spotting the red seat in a sea of green seats where Ted Williams hit the longest home run in Fenway history. Or how they got off the Green Line at Kenmore Square, just like in the book.
If you have a Red Sox fan in your life, F is for Fenway would make a great birthday, Christmas, anniversary, Father's Day, or 'just because' present. I HIGHLY recommend you pick one up today!
Are you a Red Sox fan? Have you visited Fenway Park?
