The 11th Boston championship parade since 2002 was one for the books. Beers were chugged, beers were thrown, some people were hit by said beers. But aside from a few degenerate high school kids, it was a blast for everyone involved.
Alex Cora got things started at Fenway with a great speech in which he addressed all the naysayers who expressed doubt after the loss to the Yankees in Game 2 of the ALDS:

Devin LaBrie, a videographer from New Hampshire, made the trip down to Boston for the parade. He followed the duckboats for the entire route and captured some excellent footage:
Facebook page “Only In Boston” compiled all of the social media clips from players to create a nine-minute video of the parade from their perspective:
The celebration continued on Saturday when Cora headed to his home country of Puerto Rico with David Price, Brock Holt, Sandy Leon, Eduardo Rodriguez, and fellow Puerto Rican Christian Vazquez:

Three months until Spring Training and these guys are going to enjoy every last second of it. Well-deserved.
