For fourth time since 2004 the Boston Red Sox celebrated a World Series title aboard a fleet of Duck Boats parading through the city streets, and they had to do it while dodging full cans of Bud Light.
One projectile even damaged the World Series trophy, as at least one fan was arrested for throwing beer.
Right fielder Mookie Betts was hit with a can of Bud Light, injured second baseman Dustin Pedroia caught another can, but threw it back because it was warm, and even mild-mannered pitcher Chris Sale was seen hauling in a beer and chugging most of it.
Police said security will be tight with no public drinking allowed, but that obviously was not the case.
Despite the BPD warnings, a fan reportedly tossed a full can of beer at one of the boats, and it struck and slightly damaged a World Series trophy.
Boston police have arrested a man accused of hitting someone with a can of beer thrown during a parade celebrating the World Series-winning Red Sox.
Police say 19-year-old Patrick Connolly, of Sandwich, was charged with disorderly conduct and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon. They say it struck but didn’t injure an unidentified man aboard one of the amphibious duck boats carrying players and their families in Wednesday’s parade.
The Red Sox defeated the National League champion Los Angeles Dodgers in five games to secure the franchise’s ninth title – and just its fourth since Boston sold baseball legend Babe Ruth to the Yankees following the 1919 season.
