Conquering heroes return to Fenway
BOSTON (AP) -- The Red Sox return home to a heroďż˝s welcome. The chartered plane carrying the World Series champions landed at Bostonďż˝s Logan Airport shortly before 7 a-m . Players, coaches and team officials then boarded buses for a motorcade to Fenway Park.
By the time they arrived, hundreds of tired but jubilant Red Sox fans were waiting outside the historic ballpark. The fans erupted in cheers and chanted ďż˝Letďż˝s go Red Sox,ďż˝ as one by one the players got off the buses and into waiting vehicles.
Pedro Martinez climbed halfway out of the passenger side of his SUV, raised his right arm into the air and made the ďż˝number oneďż˝ sign. Martinez thanked the fans for ďż˝keeping the faithďż˝ and believing in the team. He said he hopes this world championship wonďż˝t be the last one.
