100 years at Fenway, 100 years of memories
BOSTON (WHDH) -- The Fenway faithful have seen it all, from the highs to the lows, and as the park celebrates a century it's the perfect opportunity to look back at 100 years of memories.
Some of baseball's most memorable and historic moments happened right here in boston.
The most famous: Carlton Fisk in the 1975 World Series, waving his arms as a hard hit ball in the 12th inning cleared the wall, winning Game 6 for the Red Sox in a tight game against the Big Red Machine.
That game has been referred to as the greatest World Series game ever played.
In 1986, it was a cold April night but The Rocket was throwing flames. Roger Clemens, just 23-years-old, struck out 20 mariners, breaking the Major League record for most strikeouts in a game.
There have been some touching moments in the park as well, like when Ted Williams, at 80 years old, arrived at the 1999 All Star Game. The greatest Red Sox player of all-time had suffered two strokes, but still managed to throw out the ceremonial first pitch.
And in 2008, Jon Lester took the mound. The lefty had survived cancer, but on that day in May he was just about perfect; he threw a no-hitter, shutting down the royals as the Fenway crowd cheered him on.
Lester is one of two Red Sox pitchers who has a thrown a no-hitter at Fenway. Clay Bucholz had one in his second career start in 2007.
