To celebrate the 100th anniversary of Fenway Park, the Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, New York, opens today a new exhibit about the storied ballpark. "FENtennial: Fenway Park's First 100 Years" showcases 45 artifacts from the Boston Red Sox, including Ted Williams' 1960 home jersey, Carlton Fisk's bat from game 6 of the 1975 World Series, and Curt Schilling's blood-stained sock from the 2004 World Series.

Fenway Park officially turns 100 on April 20, 2012. The Red Sox and the city of Boston have already devised a roster of events to mark the ballpark's centennial, including a free open house at Fenway Park on April 19 and an anniversary game against the Yankees on April 20. If you can't make it to Cooperstown or Boston by April 20th, check out Boston Magazine's superb article Fenway Park Turns 100 which details the "100 most fascinating characters, moments, and tales in our beloved ballpark's history."
