Sox, down three games in the American League playoffs, rallied to win four consecutive games over the Yankees and then swept the Cardinals in the World Series to bring about a resurrection of multiple World Series pennants, which was the way it was in Babe Ruth’s time as a pitcheroutfielder for Boston.

The Curse of the Bambino, the Babe getting even with Red Sox owner Harry Frazee for trading him to the New York Yankees, was like a plague in Boston for 86 years, which is how long it took the team to overcome the losing drought which began in 1918, the year of Ruth’s departure from Boston.

Winning four World series championships in this century, the Red Sox have been the most successful big-league franchise since 2000.

Even in off years, an outing at Fenway Park can be a fulfilling experience— if you enjoy walking down memory lane.
