Red Sox shotgun beers to celebrate trip to World Series (Video)
After a three-year playoff drought — and last-place finish in the AL East last season — the Boston Red Sox are back in the World Series. The Sox defeated the Detroit Tigers in six games in the ALCS, taking huge grand slams from David Ortiz and Shane Victorino, as well as a big solo home run from Mike Napoli in Game 3 to send them back to the Fall Classic.
The Sox celebrated their trip to the World Series by shotgunning a bunch of beers inside their clubhouse at Fenway Park. Luckily for us, the team shared the video on Vine. All that was missing was a few pieces of fried chicken.
Below is a video of David Ortiz spraying champagne all over the place:
The Sox are favored in the World Series over the St. Louis Cardinals, whom they swept in 2004. This is the first trip back for the Sox since 2007, which they also won in a sweep.
