The Fisk Pole     The left field foul pole was officially named The Fisk Pole in 2005.

On June 13, 2005, the Red Sox faced the Cincinnati Reds, whom they had not played since the 1975 World Series, in an interleague game at Fenway Park. The Red Sox commemorated the matchup with a ceremony before the game in which the left field foul pole was officially named the "Fisk Pole". Carlton Fisk sat in the Green Monster seats next to the pole before the game, while his historic game-winning home run off the foul pole in Game 6 of the '75 Series was played on the scoreboard. Then he threw out the first pitch, caught - in a reversal of roles - by his Game 6 battery-mate, Luis Tiant.
