Celebrate the centennial of Fenway Park, one of Boston’s most popular attractions and a landmark for baseball fans everywhere.

Using a Red Sox/Yankees game as a thread, Inside Fenway Park: An Icon at 100, airing Monday, March 26 at 10 p.m. on WXXI-TV/HD (DT21.1/cable 11/cable 1011), tells the story of Fenway’s long history as a venue for sports and as a public space: masses for WWI soldiers, a 1922 Irish Republican rally, FDR’s last presidential campaign speech, concerts by Bruce Springsteen and others. A decade ago, it looked as though Fenway would be largely destroyed and replaced with a new ballpark. Luckily, wiser heads prevailed and one of Boston’s most popular attractions, and a landmark for baseball fans everywhere, survived.
