|Boston Red Sox
Fall Classic at Fenway Park
Fall Classic at Fenway Park includes the Red Sox two historic World Series championships of 2004 and 2007. If the 2004 World Series was lightning in a bottle that obliterated the burden of three generations of Boston faithful, then in 2007 lightning struck twice.
The 2004 World Series film captures the historic, dramatic, life-changing championship built by a colorful and resilient roster under Manager Terry Francona that featured Kevin Millar, Johnny Damon, Curt Schilling, Derek Lowe, Jason Veritek and David Ortiz. The 2007 film celebrates the magical blend of mighty veterans Big Papi and Kevin Youkilis, rising stars Jacoby Ellsbury and Dustin Pedroia, and powerful pitchers Josh Beckett, Jonathan Papelbon and Daisuke Matsuzaka.

1945: The end of World War II led to the return of many Americans to their pre-war livelihoods—including Detroit hurler Virgil Trucks. Aided by Trucks, along with American League MVP Hal Newhouser and Hank Greenberg, the Tigers beat the Chicago Cubs in seven games.
1968: The Tigers' 1968 season was dominated by pitching, and the World Series showcased three of the best. 30-game winner Denny McLain faced the Cardinals' Bob Gibson in Game 1; Gibson struck out a record 17 Tigers. After that, the Tigers' Mickey Lolich took control with three complete-game wins and Detroit won in seven games.

Highlights of the Twins' 1987 and 1991 world championships. The 1987 World Series was the first to be played indoors and the raucous Twins fans did everything they could to blow the roof off the Metrodome. This Fall Classic will be remembered for Kent Hrbek's Game 6 grand slam, while Twins fans will never forget the thunderous, homer-hanky waving crowds that propelled the Twins to a seven-game win over the St. Louis Cardinals.
1991 was even more remarkable. Considered to be one of the greatest World Series ever played, the Twins battled the Braves through seven extraordinary games. Kirby Puckett's stellar Game 6 included his game-winning 12th inning homer. The Twins captured their second championship with a 1-0, 10-inning victory from Jack Morris.
