This program celebrates the centennial of the oldest (and smallest) ballpark in America. Using a Red Sox/Yankees game as a thread, the film tells the story of Fenway's long history as a venue for sports and as a public space; masses for WWI soldiers, a 1918 Irish Republican rally, FDR's last presidential campaign speech, concerts by Bruce Springsteen and others. In 1999, it looked as if Fenway would be razed to make way for a new ballpark. Luckily, wiser heads prevailed and Boston's most popular attraction (more tourists visit Fenway than the Freedom Trail) survived.
