Fenway Turns 100: Share Your Memories

Post your favorite memories and photos of the Boston baseball landmark.

It's big, it's green and it's packed full of a century of memories.

Fenway Park is marking its 100th birthday Friday, and the Boston Red Sox will celerate 100 years of history there with a large-scale pre-game ceremony Friday night before they play the New York Yankees.

The match-up is quite fitting. On April 20, 1912, the Red Sox played New York (then called the New York Highlanders) and launched a century of baseball fever. The Red Sox and Yankees will be dressed in 1912 uniforms Friday.

You may not be able to be at that game, but that's no reason not to celebrate and reflect on Fenway Park's milestone. So we want to know what your favorite Fenway Park memories are. The first time you went there for a game? The first hot dog you ate there? Were you there for a famous (or infamous) game? Does Fenway have a special place in your family's memories? Let us know in the comments.

Also, if you have any photos from Fenway Park, upload them to this post!

Thanks to my dad I was able to go to Fenway quite often as a kid. Some of my fondest memories of the park include going there with my boy scouts troop and seeing Pedro Martinez pitch a great game from the first row on the first base side. Perhaps my favorite memory is from 1996. The Red Sox had won their first division championship in a long time the year prior. After the game my dad bought me a ball autographed by every member of the team. The ball came in a plastic case and sat atop a plastic stand. Of course the autographs were fake, but this helped me develop a longtime love for baseball. Fenway truly is a magical place (unless you're over 6 feet tall). I'm very excited to watch the festivities today.
