Red Sox return to Fenway after ALDS victory; fans excited
BOSTON (WHDH) -- For the first time in five years the ALCS will be back in Boston. The players returned to Fenway Park very early Wednesday morning. Buses dropped them off before 6:30. The players looked tired but they said they were feeling good.
Benches cleared on the Red Sox side Tuesday night as the team celebrated their victory over Tampa Bay.
Apparently the celebration lasted well into the flight home.
“It was a fun bus ride and on the plane as we were getting ready to land we thought it was the captain telling us to wake up but sure sounded like Ryan Dempster," said Dr. Charles Steinberg.
The seats will be filled at Fenway - at least for one more series - though fans are hoping for two. They’ll be playing either Detroit or Oakland in the first game set for Saturday.
