Fenway Park continues to shine as America's oldest ballpark hosts its 10th World Series.

On Thursday, fans showing up for Game 2 said it is Fenway's history and intimate size that set it apart from newer venues.

Brian Campbell's father slept outside Fenway to score tickets to the 1946 World Series. On Thursday, Campbell and his 18-year-old son, Ian, were at the game. Campbell says Fenway's magic comes from its history, its neighborhood setting and the knowledgeable and loyal fans.

Known for its iconic Green Monster in left field, the 101-year-old Fenway was home for stars including Babe Ruth, Ted Williams and Carl Yastrzemski.

The series moves to St. Louis' Busch Stadium on Saturday.
