A Historic and Emotional Night At Fenway Park
When Boston Red Sox closer Koji Uehara blew a third strike past St. Louis Cardinal Matt Carpenter the lid came off at Fenway Park and across the city of Boston. The Red Sox World Series win was both historic and incredibly emotional.
Historic- It was the first time a Red Sox team clinched a World Series at home since 1918. Their World Series victories in 2004 and 2007 were both clinched on the road.
Emotional-The city of Boston suffered through a physical and emotional trauma in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombing. The Red Sox, a team that finished in last place last season, lifted the city in the days following the tragedy and throughout the year with their inspired and inspiring play.
It was a night not to be forgotten in a city whose motto, "Boston Strong" was never more appropriate. Look who was there to share in the history and emotion!
