- Considered the largest ballpark in America when it opened.
- Bigger than Fenway Park, Braves Field was used by the Boston Red Sox for games during the 1915 and 1916 World Series and on Sundays from 1929 to 1932.
- The most distinctive feature of this park was the vast expanse of outfield grass from foul line to foul line. It wasn't until 1928 that the fences were moved in and home runs became commonplace.
- The "Jury Box" bleachers in right field served as home to a rowdy group of fans who worshiped right fielder Tommy Holmes.
- The Braves had to use Fenway Park for a short time after the 1946 home opener, when fans sat on a fresh coat of green paint that hadn’t completely dried. Consequently, many departed with green splotches on their clothes. The Braves apologized and paid more than $6,000 in cleaning bills to some 5,000 fans.
