About This Quiz

Fenway Park has the 'Green Monster,' Wrigley Field has the ivy, and Coors Field is famous for home runs. Almost every ballpark has something unique about it, which is part of the beauty of baseball. Every ballpark is a different experience. Some of them are over 100 years old, like Fenway Park, which opened in 1912. Whereas other stadiums, such as SunTrust Stadium in Atlanta, are only a few years old. 

Unlike the fields and courts of most professional sports, baseball fields come in a range of sizes. Comerica Park in Detroit has the deepest center field at 420 feet. Fenway has the shortest center field at 390 feet.
