95 Years in the Making

Thursday, October 31st, 2013

It’s no secret that the Red Sox have won a couple World Series titles in recent years, however, none of those have been clinched within the walls of Fenway Park. In fact, last night was the first time since 1918 that Boston clinched a World Series in front of their home fans. Some fans waited 95 years to witness a World Series win at home, though most of them haven’t even been alive that long.

The last time Boston clinched a World Series at home gas was just 30 cents per gallon, a loaf of bread just cost 12 cents and World War I was fresh on the minds of every American. The last Red Sox team to celebrate a home World Series win had Babe Ruth on the roster. Even more notably,  the Red Sox traded away Babe Ruth following their 1918 win,  leading to the curse of the Bambino, which ended in 2004. Needless to say, Fenway Park waited for what seemed like an eternity for a World Series clincher at home. That wait came to an end last night as Boston fans witnessed a final out, which gave the Red Sox a long awaited home World Series win over the St. Louis Cardinals.

The 2010 MLB playoffs are finally here with many great matchups. The 2010 Major League Baseball season was one of the most exciting we’ve seen in a while with pitching dominating for the first time in many years. For the playoffs, Baseball Rampage has done some research to find which baseball bats and manufacturers some of this year’s teams biggest stars are using. Let the games begin:

Cincinnati Reds vs. Philadelphia Phillies

Reds: Jay Bruce appears to be using Old Hickory Bats. Possible 2010 NL MVP Joey Votto currently uses Louisville Slugger baseball bats.
Phillies: Former MVP Shortstop Jimmy Rollins currently uses Max Bats. Slugger Ryan Howard uses bats made by Marucci Sports.

San Francisco Giants vs. Atlanta Braves

Giants: Buster Posey was difficult to find but we think he’s using Louisville Slugger bats. Aubrey Huff currently uses Carolina Clubs.
Braves: Jason Heyward used to use Rawlings but appears to have switched to Marucci Sports. Catcher Brian McCann is using Marucci Sports baseball bats.

New York Yankees vs. Texas Rangers

Yankees: Future Hall of Fame shortstop Derek Jeter uses Louisville Slugger. Alex Rodriguez, ARod, also uses Louisville Slugger.
