Official Fenway Park 2012 logo: The Fenway Park 2012 logo was officially unveiled at today’s announcement. It is a look that is timeless, contemporary and with a simplified direction that takes into consideration all the various elements inherent to Fenway Park. The keystone from the original 1912 façade that sits above Gate A acts as the primary backplate, and serves as a metaphor to speak to the relationship between Fenway Park and the Red Sox. The “FENWAY PARK” font and location are taken from the façade, and other fonts in the logo are taken from various signage around the park. The “100 YEARS” is housed in a backplate inspired by the Green Monster scoreboard.

The logo was designed by Michael Mikulec, an independent creative director and graphic designer, and a lifelong Red Sox fan. Michael’s career began at ESPN television, and his previous work has included developing brand identities for ABC, MTV, the CW and the NFL Network and, perhaps most notably, Michael's logo was selected as the official mark for NBC's coverage of the 2008 Beijing Olympics. He recently worked with the Red Sox production team to help develop their strategy for the new HD videoboards at Fenway Park.

Simple and effective.

Hate the Red Sox.

Agreed. Very nice logo. Does this make Fenway the first American stadium to reach the 100 year mark? I can't think of any older ballparks/stadiums off hand in the US.

Wrigley Field is the closest to Fenway built 2 years after in 1914.

True and it will undoubtedly reach the century mark as well, however for now I believe Fenway in addition to being America's oldest stadium is also the only one to get to the big 100.

Not sure what qualifications you're using to determine oldest (baseball, professional, etc.) but Harvard Stadium opened in 1903. It even works as a pro stadium because the then Boston Patriots played there in 1970.

One season temporarily hosting a pro team does not make it a pro stadium.

Professional. Regular professional home. I wouldn't think Harvard would qualify as it is primarily a college stadium. But it is one of the only stadiums in the US older than Fenway (Pro or otherwise). Are there any older than Harvard?
