Baseball. America’s Pastime. Although it is not as popular as it was in the past, for many it is a religion. There is no better place to worship the great sport of baseball than in America’s most beloved ballpark, Boston’s Fenway Park, which is home to the Boston Red Sox.

Rooted in tradition and history, Fenway Park turned 100 years old this year. And I figured there was no better way to celebrate than with a photo shoot! When you enter onto Yawkey Way, you can’t help but feel excited. Red and blue flags line the outside of the park, and businesses never fail to show their support for their beloved Red Sox. It’s festive and fantastic.

Although its fun outside, the magic happens inside. Getting to be on the Green Monster and looking out over an empty field is a surreal experience. You can’t help but wonder what it would have been like to see Ted Williams play. It may be small compared to modern ballparks, but it is without question, my favorite. Not only because I love being able to sing “Sweet Caroline” with other Red Sox fans, but because Fenway Park is a part of history. And when watching a game there, you feel like you’re part of something bigger than yourself.
