There is no time of the year in Boston quite like an October in which the Red Sox are primed for yet another World Series title. After last night’s 8-1 dismantling of the St. Louis Cardinals, the Red Sox are just three wins away from bringing home their 8th World Series Championship in franchise history. 2004 and 2007 saw generations of Sox fans, both young and old, take to the streets to cherish what was once viewed as “the title that will never come”. While both celebrations were peaceful for the most part, Boston Police and surrounding law enforcement officials have had to break up unruly crowds and make arrests on various individuals. This year, Mayor Tom Menino, in partnership with MLB, The Red Sox and Boston Police has released a series of rules and regulations to help control crowds and residential parking.
- If traveling to the game, take public transportation or a taxi from another destination in the city. All parking garages around the Fenway area will not be letting any cars leave past the seventh inning. The Kenmore Square Green Line station is just a stone's throw from the ballpark
- If attending the game at a bar or restaurant, do not leave that establishment. Once you have walked out the door you will not be allowed back in. All bars and restaurants will be open throughout the game, however, they will not be letting anyone in once the games start.
- Once the game has ended, don't gather in areas around the Fenway neighborhood. All attendees will be asked by BPD to proceed away from Fenway, either via Brookline Avenue or Boylston Street.
- Have a great time with friends and family, but make sure to do so responsibly!
