Fenway Park - 100 years of games

Posted by Ken Revis at 2:30 PM on March 23, 2012

As I'm sure you've know, legendary Fenway Park is 100 years old this year. It is being celebrated as the grande dame of all major league stadiums, and the heart of the game. This blog summarizes the great games at Fenway. We also provide links to the play by play of those games. Red Sox history over these 100 years has been rich with meaningful games, including 7 pennants and 3 World Series titles. There have been over 8,000 games played at the Fens, and many of them memorable. Hopefully we have included most of them. Feel free to email us with any games you feel we missed, and we will review them for possible inclusion. To search for games, you can scroll through the blog or choose a year from Table of Years below. At the present time, we don't have sufficient game information for unlinked years.

April 20, 1912 - First Game at Fenway

5 days after the sinking of the Titanic, John F. Kennedy's grandfather, John Francis "Honey Fitz" Fitzgerald, throws out the 1st pitch. It is the first professional game (the Red Sox played Harvard at Fenway on April 9th) at Fenway Park in Boston. 27,000 (some say 24,000) fans observed the proceedings.

The Red Sox overcome the New York Highlanders (they become the Yankees the following year), 7-6, in 11 innings. The game takes 3 hours and 20 minutes. New York has a 5 to 1 lead after 3, but score only 1 run thereafter, in the 8th inning, while yielding 3 in the 4th and 1 each in the 6th, 8th, and 11th innings to the Red Sox.

For Boston, Tris Speaker gets 3 hits, including the game-winner with 2 outs in the 11th inning. 2nd baseman Steve Yerkes collects 5 hits and scores 3 runs, including the winning one. Yerkes has 2 doubles to go along with 3 singles, while Speaker, 1st baseman Jake Stahl, and pitcher Charley Hall each also double. The Highlanders have no extra base hits in the game.

Although the game was played under sunny skies, the 9 errors in the game are at least partially caused by the wet field, resulting from the rainy weather of the prior couple of days that postponed the opening of the season by a couple of days.

-----------------------------------------------------

October 9th, 1912 - First World Series at Fenway

After winning the first game of the World Series, 4-3, at the Polo Grounds, the Red Sox host the second game at Fenway Park before 30,148 fans. The game features 8 unearned runs on 6 errors. The game is called after 11 innings due to darkness with a 6-6 tie.

Christy Mathewson goes the full 11 innings, giving up all 6 runs on 10 hits. None of the runs are earned as the Giants commit 5 errors, including 3 by the shortstop Art Fletcher.

Buck Herzog and Red Murray each have 3 hits for the Giants. Herzog collects 3 RBI's along with a double, triple, and sacrifice fly. Harry Hooper and Duffy Lewis have 3 hits each for the Red Sox. Also for Boston, Tris Speaker and Steve Yerkes each triple, along with 2 doubles by Lewis.

October 16, 1912 -Red Sox win first World Series at Fenway

The World Series is tied 3-3. The 8th game of the series, necessitated by the tie game (see above), is played at Fenway Park as a result of a coin flip. Because the game is scheduled at the last minute, only 17,034 fans show up. Christy Mathewson, 0 and 2 in the series, is on the mound for New York. Hugh Bedient is starting for Boston. The game is tied after 9 innings. The Giants get a run the top of the 10th. The Red Sox come to bat in the bottom of the 10th needing a run to tie and 2 to win. Mathewson is still pitching. Clyde Engle, pinch-hitting for pitcher Smoky Joe Wood, who came on in the 8th, hits a fly ball to center which Fred Snodgrass has and then drops. Engle reaches 2nd base on the error. Harry Hooper hits a fly ball to center which moves Engle to 3rd. After Steve Yerkes walks, Tris Speaker singles, scoring Engle. The game is now tied, with runners on 2nd and 3rd. After intentionally walking Duffy Lewis, Matthewson yields a fly ball to Larry Gardner, deep enough in right field to allow Yerkes to score. The Boston Red Sox are World Series Champions.

The game is tied, 2-2, after 9 innings, with both starters in the game. Both teams score 2 runs in the 10th inning and are scoreless in the 11th. After Philadelphia is retired in the 12th with no runs, Hank Gowdy, the Braves catcher, who earlier in the game had doubled in a run and homered, leads off the bottom of the 12th with a ground rule double. After Larry Gilbert is walked intentionally, Herbie Moran lays down a bunt. Bush fields it and in attempting to get Mann at 3rd (Mann had pinch run for Gowdy), throws the ball away, allowing Mann to score. The Braves take a 3-0 lead in the Series.

Ellsbury and Varitek also double in the game. They are now 1 1/2 games in front of New York in the AL East, and have a 9 game lead over the Tampa Bay Rays, their closest competition for a wild card slot. However, they will have the biggest September slide in major league history, as they go 7 and 20 and are eliminated from the playoffs.
