The Tobin Bridge carries US Route 1 over the Mystic River between Chelsea and the Charlestown area of Boston, Massachusetts.
Officially named the Maurice J Tobin Memorial Bridge, it is sometimes informally called the Mystic River Bridge, its original name until 1967.
The double-deck cantilevered truss bridge carries southbound traffic into Boston on its upper level and Chelsea-bound traffic going north on the lower level, with a cashless toll system operational in both directions. Including approaches, the bridge is approximately 2¼ miles (or 3.6 kilometers) long.
The lone red seat among the dark green seats in Fenway Park’s right field bleachers (Section 42, Row 37, Seat 21) marks the longest baseball home run ever in the Boston baseball park, hit by Red Sox left fielder Ted Williams on June 9th, 1946.
The home run by Williams, a left-handed batter, was recorded at 502 feet (or 153 meters), and the ball reportedly struck the head of spectator Joseph A. Boucher of Albany, New York, penetrating a straw hat he was wearing at the time.
The Boston Red Sox were playing the Detroit Tigers in the second game of a doubleheader and won with a final score of 11-6.
