The Boston Red Sox and their fans are taking to the streets Wednesday to celebrate the franchise’s fourth World Series title in the last 15 years. Boston captured the 2018 Fall Classic crown on Sunday night, closing out the Los Angeles Dodgers in five games. The Red Sox were the best team in baseball, winning 108 games in the regular season and going 11-3 in the postseason. They’re also one of the best teams of all time.
Will they have one of the best World Series parades of all time? We’ll find out as players and coaches ride duck boats through Boston. The parade is set to start at 11 a.m. ET on Boylston Street, next to Fenway Park. Here’s streaming info for the parade.
While this is the Red Sox’s fourth title since 2004, the parade will be a first for many of the team’s stars. Mookie Betts, Chris Sale, David Price and Andrew Benintendi are among first-time World Series winners on the Red Sox’s roster. Manager Alex Cora, who masterfully handled a pressure-packed first season in Boston, will be riding in a parade for the second year in a row, as he celebrated the Astros’ 2017 World Series title when he was their bench coach.
Sale, who got the final three outs in the World Series-clinching win, will be back with the Red Sox as they try to defend their title in 2019. The team picked up his $15 million option for next season earlier this week.
But before Boston plans ahead too much for next year, they’ll be enjoying the team’s 2018 title on Wednesday. Follow along below with our live updates as we share videos, photos and thoughts on the Red Sox’s parade.
