April brings us the start of the baseball season and Opening Day at Fenway Park. Throughout the years, no matter how the fans are feeling about the Red Sox, devotees fill Fenway excited to cheer on the home team for the first game of the year. The oldest Major League Baseball stadium in the country has been slightly renovated through the 101 years but the nostalgia and love of the game remain on Opening Day. - Leanne Burden Seidel and Lisa Tuite
