Is the RF foul pole called Pesky's Pole or The Pesky Pole? And if it is Pesky's Pole, who is it named after?

Thanks! From the Picture it looks like you are staring at The Green Monster. If you sit there do you need to look toward 9 o'clock to see home plate?

Pesky's Pole the story behind it is (its named after johnny pesky), they say johnny pesky had so little power the only way hed hit a homerun is if he wrapped iit around that right field foul pole which is the shortest part of fenway

I think he was shocked that someone doesn't know who it was named after and where it is in the field.. not the story behind it... Pesky has, in one form or another, been involved in the Red Sox Organization since he joined the team in 1943.. it was until MLB made a rule that prevented him from sitting in the dugout.. before that he was at nearly every game, on the bench.

I had the pleasure of meeting him at Spring Training back in 1996.. he is a wonderfully polite and happy person.

Actually I did know that it was named after Pesky. I just wasn't sure if it was Pesky's Pole or The Pesky Pole. But after further review, it is called both!
