Joe Robbins/Getty Images(BOSTON) — Protected for years to come: Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox, will be listed in the National Registry of Historic Places.

The listing will give added protection to the famous ballpark. The Massachusetts Historical Commission will now review any proposed changes.

Fenway Park is Major League Baseball’s oldest stadium, having hosted its first official game on April 20, 1912. The park is home to some of the most historic features in baseball, including The Green Monster and Pesky’s Pole.
