Items from Boston’s World Series run go on display

Bats, gloves and jerseys used by the Boston Red Sox during their

World Series victory are among the memorabilia now on display at

the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum.

The items went on display Thursday in the Cooperstown museum’s

”Autumn Glory” section, where artifacts documenting the history

of World Series and postseason play are exhibited.

The Rex Sox defeated the St. Louis Cardinals in six games for

their third championship in 10 seasons. The display includes a bat

used by World Series MVP David Ortiz, spikes worn by closer Koji

Uehara (oo-eh-hahr-ah) and the fake beard Hall of Famer Carlton

Fisk wore when he threw out the ceremonial first pitch before Game

6.

Boston’s 2013 World Series items will be on display through the

end of the 2014 postseason.
