LOS ANGELES (WPRI) — World Series trophy in hand, the world champion Boston Red Sox have returned from Los Angeles.
The team boarded a flight Monday and arrived at Logan Airport a little after 9:00pm.
The team returned to Fenway Park around 10 p.m., World Series trophy in hand, as ecstatic fans made efforts to catch a glimpse of the players with their new hardware.
Backed by strong pitching and a quartet of home runs, the Red Sox defeated the Dodgers in Game 5 Sunday night to bring home their fourth title in the past 14 years.
About 3,000 miles away, a massive crowd of their fans gathered outside Fenway Park to celebrate. On Monday, fans continued to stop buy to pick up merchandise and snap a photo of the new championship banner outside the historic stadium.
Boston Mayor Marty Walsh announced Monday that a duckboat parade to celebrate the victory will be held at 11 a.m. Wednesday.
