Exhibit Honoring World Series Champion Red Sox Now Open at Hall of Fame
(COOPERSTOWN, NY) – Cooperstown is turning red to celebrate Boston’s latest World Series title.
The Museum will celebrate the Red Sox’s 2018 World Series championship through Autumn Glory, the annual tribute to the World Series Champions in Cooperstown. The exhibit is now open, and entrance to Autumn Glory is included with Museum admission.
Following Boston’s World Series-clinching win on Oct. 28, the Museum acquired several artifacts from the Red Sox, who notched the franchise’s ninth Fall Classic crown – and fourth in 15 seasons – with their victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 114th World Series. Artifacts donated by the Red Sox and featured in the exhibit celebrating the 2018 postseason include:
- Bat used by World Series MVP Steve Pearce in Game 4
- A jersey worn by David Price in Game 5 of the World Series
- Game-worn glasses used by Red Sox reliever Joe Kelly in Game 5
- Cap and spikes worn by Red Sox pitcher Nathan Eovaldi throughout the World Series
- Ball/strike indicator used by home plate umpire Ted Barrett during Game 3, which was the longest game in World Series history
- Hoodie worn by Red Sox manager Alex Cora in Game 5
- Helmet worn by Brock Holt throughout the postseason, including in his Oct. 8 cycle against the Yankees
The 2018 World Series exhibit in Autumn Glory will be on display through the conclusion of the 2019 Major League Baseball postseason.
In 2019, the Museum will continue its salute to the Red Sox World Championship of 2018 with special programming to be announced in the spring.
The Museum collections contain many artifacts documenting the entire history of World Series and postseason play, including Don Larsen’s cap and Yogi Berra’s mitt from Larsen’s 1956 perfect game; Joe Carter’s bat from his Series-ending blast in 1993; the jersey David Freese wore when he hit his game-winning home run in Game 6 in 2011; and World Series rings from the last century of Fall Classic competition.
