Fenway Park, the home stadium of the Boston Red Sox, celebrates its 100th anniversary in 2012. The Red Sox began their first season in 1901, as the team of legendary pitcher “Cy” Young, who was the only pitcher in the first 100 years of baseball to win 500 games. Fenway Park was constructed specifically for the Red Sox and opened in 1912. That year the team posted their best season to date with a record of 105-47. They went on to defeat the New York Giants in the first World Series match-up between the National and American League champions.Babe Ruth, perhaps the most well-known baseball player in history, joined the Red Sox in 1914. He played for the team until 1920 and led them to several more World Series championships. The Red Sox have had their ups and downs over the years, as any professional sports team does. One of the most memorable moments in recent Red Sox history was in 2004, when they recovered from a 3-0 deficit to win the American League Championship Series and became the first team in Major League Baseball history to do so. That season the Red Sox went on to win their first World Series championship in 86 years.About the author: Jared Skvirsky knows the stadium better than most: for five years he worked as a clubhouse attendant for the Red Sox while pursuing his studies in Marketing and Business at the University of Massachusetts in Boston.

An experienced marketing professional and former SEO specialist and customer service representative with Boston Web Marketing, Jared Skvirsky supports the efforts of several charitable organizations in his community. In particular, Jared Skvirsky has contributed to the Greater Boston Food Bank, an eastern Massachusetts-based nonprofit dedicated to relieving hunger and delivering meals to those in need. In addition to its more traditional forms of donation and volunteering, the Greater Boston Food Bank (GBFB) encourages individuals to support the fight against hunger by contacting their elected representatives at all levels of government. By advocating for increased hunger relief in communities across Massachusetts, individuals can increase awareness of the issue and ultimately build social and political momentum. Currently, the Greater Boston Food Bank asks advocacy volunteers to contact their State Senators in support of the Massachusetts Emergency Food Assistance Program, which is in danger of not receiving funding in the next fiscal year. If passed, the measure will provide funding to more than 800 food pantries, shelters, and soup kitchens across Massachusetts.
