Boston prepares to toast its World Series champions
Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

BOSTON (AP) -- Boston will toast its first World Series champions in 86 years with a parade Saturday that will stretch from the Fenway to City Hall Plaza.

But it won�t include the traditional rally at its end because of concerns about the size of the crowd and security.

The Red Sox swept the St. Louis Cardinals in four games for their first World Series title since 1918.

City officials say the Red Sox crowd could be twice as big as the one-point-five (m) million people who attended the February parade for the Super Bowl champion Patriots.

Mayor Tom Menino describes the parade as a �rolling rally,� with no planned stops along the approximately three-mile route.

Like the Patriots, the Red Sox players will ride in �Duck Boats,� Boston�s famous amphibious tourist vehicles.

Menino says police will be out in force to ensure things don�t get out of hand.
