As one of the league's earliest success stories, the Boston Red Sox, originally called the Boston Americans, won the first-ever World Series in 1904, and continued to dominate for over a decade.

Weeks after the Boston Red Sox knocked the New York Yankees out of the postseason, the team celebrated their World Series win against the Los Angeles Dodgers by trolling their longtime rivals.

Mayor Marty Walsh said that he expected large crowds for the parade and that traffic and parking restrictions would be in place, along with tight security. "Maybe it's because we have a lot of them or maybe it's because of the way we conduct ourselves". This year, they were overmatched against a Red Sox team that finished the regular season with a plus-229 run differential, losing the finale by a 5-1 score. A spokeswoman for the university said there were no arrests and no injuries reported.

The parade route began at Lansdowne Street and travels through Boylston Street past Boston Common, then ends near City Hall. If you're a Red Sox fan who won't be in Boston (or is stuck at work) on Wednesday, you'll still be able to watch the parade from afar.
