Middlebrooks, Red Sox hold "rolling rally" to celebrate title

Posted: Updated:
Boston, Ma -

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.

Players still sporting their beards, manager John Farrell, coaches and team officials boarded 25 amphibious "duck boats" on the warning track. The route includes the Boston Marathon finish line on Boylston Street where three spectators died in the bombings during the April race. The vehicles also will go into the Charles River between Boston and Cambridge.
