The Boston Red Sox, ever the classy professional sports franchise, took out a full-page newspaper advertisement thanking the St. Louis Cardinals. The ad, which reads “From One Great Baseball Town To Another,” can be found in the St. Louis Post Dispatch.
The Red Sox topped the Cardinals, four games to two, for a thrilling World Series win. It was the fourth time the two teams have faced off in the Fall Classic.
The two franchises have accounted for a total of 19 World Series titles throughout history (Cardinals – 11, Red Sox – 8).
The ad closes with, “So we tip our caps to each and every one of you. We look forward to seeing you again next August. Let’s hope that it’s just a prelude to meeting again in October.”
