What is the Green Monster and where can you find it? Or how about the Pesky Pole? If you're a baseball fan or live anywhere in the Northeast, the answers immediately spring to mind. You'll find them both at fabled Fenway Park in Boston, Massachusetts. Just in time to celebrate the centennial of its opening day comes F is for Fenway: America's Oldest Major League Ballpark, an alphabetical tribute to the home of the Boston Red Sox team. From the ceremonial first pitch thrown on April 20, 1912, by Mayor John Fitzgerald (grandfather of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy), Fenway Park was destined for amazing moments in baseball history. Baseball fans young and old will enjoy reading about the park's history, features, and momentous events, including famous home runs from luminaries such as Ted Williams and Carlton Fisk. And, as the oldest major league ballpark still in use, Fenway still has more history to make.Jerry Pallotta's The Icky Bug Alphabet Book has sold more than one million copies. He lives in Boston, Massachusetts. John S. Dykes lives in Sudbury, Massachusetts. His awards include medals and recognition from the Society of Illustrators.
