Hometown Heroes

Not since Woodrow Wilson was president and Over There was the in the Top Ten has Boston won a World Series at home.  Congratulations; you earned every bit of it.

Boston_Red_SoxBOSTON — For the entire month of October, the Red Sox kept grinding with the type of tunnel vision that allowed them to prevail in every big situation imaginable.

But during the final chapter — the one that solidified that their season will be remembered forever — they finally had a chance to soak it all in.

And ditto for their rabid fan base, which was able to cheer on a World Series clincher at Fenway Park for the first time since 1918.

In winning the World Series with a 6-1 victory over the Cardinals in Game 6 on Wednesday night, the Red Sox claimed their place in history in emphatic fashion.

By the end of the fourth inning, they led, 6-0, turning the rest of the night into joyous anticipation for the celebratory pile-up of players that occurred once it truly was over.

After once going 86 years without a World Series title, the one the Red Sox clinched Wednesday was their third in the last 10 seasons, the most of any team in the Majors over that span.
