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
Boston’s 2013 World Series items will be on display through the
end of the 2014 postseason.
