Players new and old understand Red Sox history
Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

St. LOUIS (AP) -- They won as a team, and celebrated as a team.

First baseman Doug Mientkiewicz broke down and cried last night after the Red Sox beat the Cardinals 3-to-0 to win the World Series. Mientkiewicz joined Red Sox just three months ago, yet he knew what it meant to be a part of Boston�s first World Series title since 1918.

Orlando Cabrera wanted so badly to be a part of the mob of players hugging along the first base line that he took a running start before throwing himself on top of the scrum. He also was acquired on July 31st as a free agent.

Reliever Keith Foulke talked about being part of history.

From Trot Nixon�drafted by the Red Sox in 1993 -- to Mike Myers, signed just August sixth, the Boston Red Sox celebrated their first World Series title in 86 years.

Knuckleballer Tim Wakefield, who has been in Boston the longest, said the city of Boston has gotten to celebrate a lot of other world championships, but never the Red Sox. Now, Bostonians can say �we�re world champions.�
