An estimated two-million people jammed the streets of Boston on Saturday to honor the 2013 Word Series Champion Boston Red Sox.  Players, team officials and their families boarded Duck Boats at Fenway Park Saturday morning, and traveled several miles through the streets of Boston to the Charles River.  The boats then entered the river and made a short loop, cheered by fans all along the way.

The parade included some emotional moments on Boylston St., at the finish line of the Boston Marathon.  Players Jonny Gomes and Jared Saltalamacchia presented to Marathon officials and local business owners,  home and away Red Sox jerseys, with the inscription, “Boston Strong” and “617.”  The jersey’s have hung in the Red Sox dugout since the days after the bombing, which killed three people and injured more than 200 others.  A short time later, World Series MVP David Ortiz climbed off the Duck Boat he was riding, and walked across the finish line in memory of the victims.

The parade continued to the Charles River and then back to Fenway.  Several players after the event appeared almost stunned by the turnout and the emotion of the day, and said it was hard to put into words.  Pitcher Brandon Workman could only say “unbelievable” when questioned byTV reporters.
