Fenway Park’s upcoming 100th anniversary has some baseball fans singing more than just a few verses of "Sweet Caroline."

Boston-based American Classics is celebrating the Red Sox home field with a musical tribute to baseball and the ballpark called Fabulous Fenway.

American Classics, co-founded by Allston-Brighton residents Ben Sears and Brad Conner, performs only American music with songs ranging from beloved favorites to forgotten tunes.

For their tribute America’s pastime, the group will perform songs including “That Baseball Rag” and “Tessie” and call on the so-called Poet Laureate of the Boston Red Sox, Dick Flavin, to join the show.

Flavin, a longtime Boston broadcaster, previously wrote Teddy at the Bat, a tribute to the late Red Sox slugger Ted Williams.

Fabulous Fenway will be stage at the Follen Community Church in Lexington Friday at 7:30 p.m. and at the Longy School of Music’s Pickman Hall in Cambridge Sunday at 3 p.m. Tickets are available here.
