BOSTON (AP) - Jubilant Red Sox fans have taken to the streets around Fenway Park to cheer their team's World Series victory, the first time Boston has won baseball's fall classic at home in 95 years.
Fans chanted and caroused outside the historic ballpark Wednesday after Boston vanquished the St. Louis Cardinals 6-1 in Game 6. Police reported no significant problems immediately following the game but said they were ready for post-game celebrations.
The Red Sox have now won three World Series in a decade, but they hadn't won at home since 1918.
The triumphant fans spilling out of Fenway joined hundreds already gathered around the ballpark.
Russ Stappen paid several hundred dollars for a ticket but says it was a small price to be a part of Red Sox history.
