Fenway Park: Movies To Celebrate Historic Ballpark's 100th Anniversary

Posted: Updated:

Fenway Park, the home of the Boston Red Sox, hosted its first baseball game on April 20, 1912. (Fun fact: the game was initially scheduled for April 18, but was delayed two days because of rain.) The venerable ballpark is the oldest Major League Baseball stadium currently in use, and housed some incredible moments over the last century -- from Carlton Fisk's home run in Game 6 of the 1975 World Series to David Ortiz's dramatic heroics in the 2004 American League Championship Series.

Fittingly, the Red Sox will play the New York Yankees on Friday night to mark the anniversary -- the first game was against the New York Highlanders, who later became the Yankees -- but here at HuffPost Entertainment, the best way to honor 100 years of Fenway is by looking back through cinema. (Hey, it's Friday.)

Ahead, the five best Fenway Park moments on film.
