The major league ballpark that's been around longer than any other has a trivia book written about it by the guy who has authored more books about the Red Sox than any other writer.

Bill Nowlin's Fenway Park Trivia is an often challenging but always informative book. It poses 105 questions about the Red Sox's century-old home and the detailed answers that follow make up the bulk of the reading material (questions account for 37 pages and it takes 66 pages to answer them).

As an added bonus, 41 "Fenway firsts" are compiled over the course of three pages, between the questions and answers sections. So, for example, you'll know who singled for the first ever official Fenway hit, in addition to all the knowledge gleaned from the questions & answers that cover Fenway's first 100 years.

All in all, this book offers a compelling compilation of history that has happened at Fenway, and for a small sum (just a buck per decade). Whether it's used for personal enrichment or to stump other persons, an educational and enjoyable experience will be had by all.
