Nov. 1 (Bloomberg) -- The Boston Red Sox will celebrate their third World Series title in 10 years with a parade tomorrow through the city and then into the Charles River using amphibious vehicles known as duck boats.
The Red Sox captured their eighth Major League Baseball championship two nights ago at Boston’s Fenway Park with a 6-1 win against the St. Louis Cardinals. It was the first time in 95 years that the Red Sox, who won the best-of-seven series four games to two, had clinched the World Series at home.
Boston finished last in the American League East a year ago. The only other team to win a World Series title the year after a last-place finish was the 1991 Minnesota Twins.
The parade will start near Fenway Park at 10 a.m. local time. The duck boats, which usually ferry tourists around the city, will drive down Boylston Street, past Boston Common and through the downtown area to the Museum of Science, where they will go into the Charles for a celebratory lap.
