This book offers a behind the scenes account of everything that goes on at Boston's Fenway Park during a Red Sox game.

A total of 64 writers compiled the short stories that make up The Fenway Project. Each of the authors are members of the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR), and most wrote their accounts after attending Fenway Park for a June 28, 2002 game against the Atlanta Braves.

The Red Sox granted the authors special credentials and recollections of experiencing the game are published from nearly every one of Fenway's unique vantage points. With each writer choosing a different topic to cover, the brief first person accounts give readers an unbiased collection of all the activities that take place at America's oldest and most beloved ballpark.

The result is a fascinating look at Major League Baseball, the Red Sox and their colorful history, the charms and challenges of Fenway Park, and the allure of being a baseball fan.

    The Fenway Project book

    Inside The Monster page
    Eighty-one times a year, sometimes more, Rich Maloney and Chris Elias spend four hours together in a dark, long, narrow room, perhaps five feet wide by 40 feet deep, with a sloping ceiling just high enough to walk under. It is, to be sure, an unusual place to report for work, but Rich and Chris have two of the best jobs in baseball. They are the men who work behind Fenway Park's hand-operated scoreboard. Both in their early thirties, they have been doing this together for twelve years....
