Summary or Annotation: For all that has been written in tribute to the great Fenway Park, no one has ever really told the behind-the-scenes true story of its birth, construction, and tumultuous yet glorious first season, 1912. While the paint was still drying and the infield still turning green, the Red Sox embarked on an unlikely season that would culminate in a World Series battle against John McGraw's mighty Giants that stands as one of the greatest ever played. Fenway Park made all the difference, helping to turn an average team into the greatest in Red Sox history.
