Fenway Park is a baseball park located in Boston, Massachusetts, at 4 Yawkey Way near Kenmore Square. Since 1912, it has been the location for the Boston Red Sox, the city's Major League Baseball (MLB) franchise. It is the oldest ballpark in Major League Baseball.Because of its age and constrained location in Boston's dense Fenway–Kenmore neighborhood, the park has been renovated or expanded many times, resulting in quirky heterogeneous features including "The Triangle" (below), "Pesky's Pole", and the Green Monster in left field. It is the fourth smallest among MLB ballparks by seating capacity, second smallest by total capacity, and one of eight that cannot accommodate at least 40,000 spectators.Fenway has hosted the World Series ten times, with the Red Sox winning five of them, and the Braves (then of Boston) winning one. The first, in the park's inaugural season, was the 1912 World Series and the most recent was the 2013 World Series. Besides baseball games it has been the site of many other sporting and cultural events including professional football games for the Boston Redskins, Boston Yanks, and the Boston Patriots; concerts; soccer and hockey games; and political and religious campaigns.
BU Central is Boston University’s late night entertainment venue, located right in the center of campus. Every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night, we bring you the best in music acts of various genres, hilarious comedians, and whatever crazy events our staff can come up with. We’ve already brought some of your favorite bands and comedians — Tokyo Police Club, Ted Leo, Questlove, Bo Burnham, and Myq Kaplan— just to name a few. We have some wild and fun events like the Adult Spelling Bee, Drag Bingo, and Red Sox Nation. And if you aren’t too shy to get up on our stage, we’ve got events like BU for Show, an open mic night for everyone, Battle of the Bands, and BU’s Funniest Student.
What makes BU Central so great? Maybe it’s the intimate setting—with a capacity of only 400, you’re never more than a few feet away from all the action. There’s hardly a bad seat in there (unless you’re behind a pole). Or maybe it’s because you can always count on us to bring up-and-coming stars to perform. One day you might be able to say “I was there when (insert band or comedian here) played at BU Central!”
If you’ve ever thought about working in the entertainment industry, check out our leadership and volunteer opportunities.
