History of Fenway Park
Ground was broken on the stadium on September 25, 1911. Fenway Park was completed shortly 102 days later on April 20, 1912. The stadiums name came from its location in the Fenway neighbordhood in Boston. John I. Taylor purchased the land where they built Fenway Park, he also owned Fenway Realty Company, which has also been speculated as to how the stadium got its name.
Mayor John F. Fitzgerald threw the first pitch at the first game held on April 20, 1912. They beat the New York Highlanders (Renamed the Yankees the following year). Fenway Park was open just a few days after the Titanic went down, which overshadowed the coverage of the game.
The park’s address was changed to Yawkey Way in honor of the teams owner Tom Yawkey in 1977. Before that the address was 24 Jersey Street.
