Ever dreamt of hitting one over the Green Monster (but, you know, that’s pretty hard)?

Your dream could kind of come true if you visit one of several “mini-Fenways” throughout New England, used for everything from Little League to softball to whiffleball.

But before we proceed to the replicas, some trivia about the original (with some help from MLB.com):

  • Fenway Park opened in 1912 – the same week the Titanic struck the iceberg, a tidbit that always rose to the surface during each pre-2004 Red Sox collapse.
  • The first concert at Fenway Park took place in 1959 and featured the legendary Ray Charles.
  • The first standup comedian to perform at Fenway Park was Massachusetts native Bill Burr in 2022.
  • The Boston (now Atlanta) Braves shared Fenway Park with the Sox in 1914 and won the World Series there that fall.
  • Legendary Los Angeles Dodgers announcer Vin Scully got his big break at Fenway, calling a college football game from the cold, windy roof in 1948.
  • In 1969, WWE legend Bruno Sammartino wrestled fellow Hall of Famer (and Massachusetts’ own) Killer Kowalski in front of 17,000 fans.
  • In 1973, Fenway hosted the Newport Jazz Festival, featuring B.B. King and Stevie Wonder.
  • In 1963, the Boston (now New England) Patriots began playing their home games at Fenway, before later relocating to Foxboro (after a brief, but real, flirtation with Hartford, Connecticut).
  • Also in 1963, the Harlem Globetrotters played at Fenway.
  • In 1976, the park installed its digital scoreboard in centerfield.
  • In 2003, seats were added to the Green Monster. Initially scoffed at by diehards, they are now the most sought-after seats in the park.
