"This year's playoff run was an unexpected gift. Fenway Park was rejuvenated with a level of energy we haven't felt in years. The Sox eliminated the Yankees and Rays before falling two wins short of a World Series appearance. The end was disappointing, but the ride was exhilarating." — Tom Caron, The Sun Journal (Lewiston, Maine), 22 Nov. 2021

Did you know?

Rejuvenate originated as a combination of the prefix re-, which means "again," with the Latin parent of juvenile and juniorjuvenis, meaning "young." Rejuvenate literally means "to make young again" and can imply a restoration of physical or mental strength or a return to a more youthful, healthy condition. Things that are timeworn can also be rejuvenated.
