For the first time in more than a generation, the Boston Red Sox have won the World Series at Fenway Park, and fans couldn’t be more excited.
With about 38,000 people inside Fenway Park to witness history, countless more gathered outside wanting to join in the celebration. However, they were kept at bay by Boston police and officers from other agencies as part of the city’s safety plan.[embedgallery id=245304]
Countless people crowded bars and restaurants in the Kenmore Square area early in the evening. Police said in the top of the fifth inning, about 9:45 p.m., that bars had reached capacity and, as promised, they dispersed lines and asked people not inside a bar to leave the area.
