Opening Day at Fenway Park

BU has had a long relationship with the Boston Red Sox, including Babe Ruth, who often stayed at Myles when it was a hotel.

When Myles Standish Hall was still a hotel, baseball legend Babe Ruth favored Suite 818 because he enjoyed its view of the Charles River. Ruth played for the Red Sox at Fenway Park from 1914 to 1919 and ended his career with the Boston Braves, who played at Braves Field, now Nickerson Field, in 1935.
