Giants Invade Fenway

Fenway Park is the oldest ballpark in the major leagues. It was built in 1912. The last time the Giants played the Red Sox in Fenway Park was in 1912, the year it was built. And in the World Series at that. The Giants did play some games in Fenway in 1914 and '15 because the Boston Braves leased the park before building Braves Field, but they didn't play the Red Sox those years.

So this interleague series between the Giants and Red Sox was one of the original promises of interleague play. Too bad it took 11 years to occur.
