Boston ‘Tigers’ win the World Series!

Published

on

On Sunday night, the Boston Red Sox took care of business as they defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 5 to win the World Series.

Heading into the Series, many Detroit Tigers fans, including yours truly, started referring to the Red Sox as the Boston “Tigers” because of all of the former Tigers on the team.

One of those former Tigers is Red Sox starting pitcher David Price, who was outstanding in two starts (and a relief appearance) against the Dodgers.

Price started and won Game 2 as he gave up two earned runs in six innings of work as the Red Sox won 4-2 to jump out to a 2 games to none lead.

He then pitched 0.2 innings of relief without giving up a run in the Red Sox Game 3 loss in Los Angeles.

Price solidified himself as a contender for the World Series MVP by going seven innings and allowing just a single run on three hits in the Sox Game 5 win. Steve Pearce, who hit three home runs in the series, ended up winning the award for the Red Sox.

Another former Tiger joining in on the fun was J.D. Martinez, who hit a pair of home runs in the series.

Congrats to Price, Martinez, Ian Kinsler, and Rick Porcello on winning a World Series title!

MUST SEE: Autistic Special Olympian scores final touchdown for high school football team

Let’s admit it, sometimes we get just a bit too fired up about what happens on the athletic field. Sure, there are highs and lows and it’s natural to feel excitement and disappointment during those times, but when all is said and done, does it really matter?

Well, what happened on Thursday night during a high school football game in Las Vegas absolutely matters. In fact, it matters a lot.

During Bonanza High School’s final game of the season, something happened that showed everything that is right about high school athletics. With Bonanza trailing Faith Lutheran 41-6 in the fourth quarter, senior Richard Curry entered at running back for what would end up being the final play of the game.

What makes this truly special is that Curry, who is an autistic Special Olympian, has been the football manager at Bonanza for the past three seasons and he had never played a single snap in a high school game.
