Fenway Park: Eight things you didn’t know

2 of 9

The Red Sox played their first ever game at Fenway Park on April 20th, 1912 (yes, almost 103 years ago). After 11 innings, the Red Sox defeated the New York Highlanders (who would later become the Yankees) by a final score of 7-6. However, this was not the first game ever played at Fenway, since the Red Sox had taken on Harvard College in an exhibition game on April 9th. The game took place after two rain delays, and would have been front-page news, had the Titanic not sunk just days before.
