An index would upgrade it from a coffee table book to a great history and research book.

There are a dozen or more Fenway Park books already out, or coming out as we approach the park's 100th anniversary. This book will probably remain unique, in that it focuses on the many, many ways Fenway Park has served as venue for a wide variety of events aside from baseball. High school football and pro football, high school baseball, boxing, wrestling, lacrosse, soccer, political speeches, religious ceremonies...the list goes on and on. The publisher devoted some extra money to put this over the top, with a number of inserts reproducing tickets and programs for some of the events of days gone by.

In one hundred years, historic events - even beyond baseball - have happened in Boston's famed Fenway Park, and they're in here. Two massive fires of which I'd never known before inspired passers-by and neighbors to fly to the park's defense even before the firemen. There are stories to make you laugh aloud, and more than one that made me cry tears of joy, along with anecdotes that astonished me. Goosebumps; it really delivers. Bob Ryan's essay is a perfect gem to end it.

It's perfect for any age, offering memories to be recalled and savored, and new stories to explore for those who are just starting to read, with hundreds of pictures.

Richard Johnson's "Field of Our Fathers" is a clever book for a milestone year for Fenway fans. Rich's role as curator of the Sports Museum at TD Garden puts him in a unique place to write such a book, packed with essays, newspaper clippings, fan memorabilia and photos. Especially exciting in these 314 pages are the pullout reprints of World Series and special event programs and tickets. Fenway Park is the site of many historic moments. Add "Field of Our Fathers" to the list.

Since I purchased this book, I have not been able to put it down. The book is definitely the most comprehensive history of Fenway Park. It offers plenty of first hand accounts of games and events that happened at the old ballyard. The editorial comments of the author add a historical perspective to Fenway's place in New England's sporting and cultural history. The book is about much more than the Red Sox. Fenway was built for the Red Sox but has been the greatest venue for the some of the biggest events in New England history. Fenway did not only feature the boys of summer but the heroes of the fall. There were plenty of epic football contests in the first fifty years of Fenway's history. I never knew that Notre Dame played Dartmouth at Fenway or that George Halas brought the barnstorming Bears into town to show New Englanders how football should be played. It's unfortunate that the days of Boston University football and the BC- Holy Cross football rivalry are gone forever. I was amazed at how many high school athletes took the field as well as the variety of events at Fenway. I am happy that the Red Sox owners are taking a page from Fenway's history by hosting sports events besides Red Sox baseball and concerts. The book even has a sense of humor. My favorite story was a hilarious account of a wrestling card that featured the Bruno Sammartino and the Fabulous Moolah. If it happened at Fenway, it is in the book. The pictures and illustrations are great. The book is a treasure and definitely a worthwhile purchase for anyone who is interested in sports, popular culture, New England, and Fenway Park.

Format: Hardcover
I think if this book as half as interesting as the pictures used it would have been a landmark. What it is totally lacking in is the context of the times. Barely a mention of the 1946 or 61 all star games? The story is just not there. It seems more interested in telling the story of Fenway in vague banalities than in telling the most interesting events which have taken place. No mention of its use for political rallies and other key elements.

As with most Fenway histories this one tells about events in recent history as if they are the most important events ever. Sorry but this is a pink hat history of Fenway.

Beautiful coffee table book. Loaded with facts and crystal clear images from the past. Fun for anyone, not just baseball fans. The only issue: there is no index. This is frustrating if you want to research something specific. There is no easy way to find the info except to flip through the pages and text. Next edition, PLEASE include an index!!! An index would upgrade it from a coffee table book to a great history and research book.
