Boston Red Sox championship parade

The Boston Red Sox have set out on their parade from the Green Monster to the Charles River to celebrate a most improbable journey.




The ''rolling rally'' left Fenway Park on Saturday three days after the team won the World Series with a 6-1 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 6. It capped a stunning turnaround from 2012 when the Red Sox had their worst record in nearly half a century.
