Fenway Park is the second smallest MLB park and has unique features:
Green Monster - A 37 foot 2 inch high left field wall. Painted green, the wall is 310 feet from home plate. Also called "the wall," the green monster has a manual scoreboard and over time, increased the number of doubles hit at Fenway Park.
"The Triangle" - In center field, the triangle is a Fenway Park quirk 420 feet from home plate. Because the stadium has a triangle shape caused by the Red Sox bullpen warmup area, a baseball landing inside the triangle has a good chance for extra bases.
Pesky's Pole - A short 302 feet away from home plate, the right field foul pole is named for Boston Red Sox player Johnny Pesky. Johnny Pesky hit a rare home run off the right field foul pole and the announcer Mel Parnell created the term. The pole was formally named Pesky's Pole in 2006.
