At Centennial, fans tour favorite Fenway spots
BOSTON (WHDH) -- Fenway is one of the most beloved and storied ballparks in all of major league baseball history.
Sox fans are drawn, in particular, to some of its more unique features.
The Ted Williams seat in right field is a perfect example. It was put there in 1984 and marks the location of the longest home run ever hit at Fenway Park - 502 feet to be exact.
The home run ball actually hit a fan on the head, ripping a hole in his straw hat!
Then there's the world famous Green Monster.
It's 37 feet tall and believe it or not, it's only been green since 1947! The one that stands there now is not the original; that one burned in a fire back in the 1930's.
During recent renovations, the team built a seating section on top, seats now coveted by members of Red Sox nation.
On the Green Monster is a manually operated scoreboard, one of the most unique in all of baseball, giving not just the score of the game but the division standings as well.
Down the side of the scoreboard are the initials of Thomas and Jean Yawkey, who owned the team from 1933 to 1993.
The initials are written in Morse code.
