BOSTON -- Jubilant Red Sox fans took to the streets around Fenway Park to cheer their team's World Series victory Wednesday night, the first time Boston has won baseball's fall classic at home in 95 years.
Fans poured into the streets from the ballpark and nearby bars after Boston vanquished the St. Louis Cardinals 6-1 in Game 6. Several fans were seen giving high fives to police officers.
"Words cannot describe how I feel," said Sam D'Arrigo. "This is what being a Boston fan is all about."
An excited Boston Mayor Tom Menino tweeted: "Get the ducks ready, we're having a parade."
The Red Sox have now won three World Series in a decade, but they hadn't won at home since 1918.
Police reported no significant problems immediately following the game but said they were ready for post-game celebrations and any unruly fans.
Throughout the night, the department tweeted cautionary messages, encouraging fans to "Celebrate with pride" and "Celebrate responsibly."
