Red Sox Win 2013 World Series in Game 6

The Boston Red Sox are World Champions again! And for the first time since 1918, they won it at Fenway Park. Fitting for the occasion, David Ortiz took a World Champions banner and waved it over home plate, facing the Fenway Park sign, and all the past divisional and series pennants displayed below it.

Ortiz was named Series MVP, and seemed to will this team to victory, especially in the crucial Game 4, but the win was a true team effort, with everyone contributing something to the special win. As in most winning teams, the chemistry of the players was as important as the talent on the field.

The atmosphere at Fenway was magical as fireworks exploded behind the Green Monster, and smoke filled the stadium. Fans rushed on the field to stand on home plate, pitch from the mound, and capture a little of the infield dirt for a souvenir.
