Red Sox fans filled the streets Sunday night in Boston after watching their team win its fourth World Series in 15 years. The team defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers to take the series, four games to one.
Boston police say the crowd was largely well-behaved. One person was arrested for destroying property.
Police closed off several streets around Fenway Park. A World Series championship banner was unfurled outside it just before dawn.
Jimmy Murphy of Charlestown was among those celebrating.
“They were just unbelievable. They’re a hard playing team, they stick together," he said. "They got the motivation, and they proved that.”
For devoted fans like Joe Silvera of Bridgewater, the team's win is a source of pride. He says it is too bad that the final game was on the road.
“I wish they could have finished it at home. I do," he said. "I’m ecstatic. This city is insane. I love this city. Born and raised, baby!”
In the regular season, the Red Sox beat the all-time team record for wins before going on to dominate the post-season. It wasn’t all easy — their loss to the Dodgers Friday night took 18 innings. But the team made a comeback with a 9-6 win on Saturday, and a 5-1 win on Sunday.
The Red Sox will ride through the city on duck boats for a victory parade beginning at 11 a.m. on Wednesday.
