Probably one of the greatest articles / stories I’ve ever read. Ted Williams is more than legend, Ted Williams is a God.

The Hundredth Anniversary of Fenway Park

Fenway Park celebrates its hundredth anniversary this afternoon, with ceremonies and a game between the Red Sox and the Yankees, who inaugurated the ballpark, on April 20, 1912 (back when New York’s team was known as the Highlanders). To mark the occasion, we are unlocking, for today only, John Updike’s article about Ted Williams’s final Fenway game, “Hub Fans Bid Kid Adieu,” in which Updike coined the description of Boston’s ballpark as “a lyric little bandbox.”
