RED SOX OUTFIELDER LEON CULBERSON LEAPS IN FRONT OF SCOREBOARD AT FENWAY PARK, 1943. Boston Herald-Traveler Photo Morgue, BPL Print Department. 

Fenway Park's manually-operated scoreboard, added in 1934, is the last of its kind in the major leagues. 

Built on mudflats at a cost of $650,000, Fenway Park was constructed in 1912 for the new American League team in town, the Boston Red Sox.  

One of the smallest parks in Major League Baseball, Fenway is beloved by Sox players and fans—if not opposing teams—for its quirky architectural features, storied past, and generations of poignant memories captured within its confines.
