BOSTON (AP) — The duck boats are ready to roll as Boston salutes the Red Sox on their fourth World Series title in 15 years.
The parade is set to begin Wednesday outside Fenway Park with players, coaches and team officials climbing aboard the amphibious vehicles. The parade will wind its way through several major streets expected to be lined by hundreds of thousands of fans.
During a pre-parade ceremony, Red Sox manager Alex Cora thanked fans for their support. He says it’s been a “historic season” in which the team won a team record 108 games during the regular season before beating the Yankees, Astros and Dodgers in the playoffs.
Police say security will be tight, with no public drinking allowed. Fans are also being asked not to bring in large items such as backpacks, coolers and strollers.
