Ball Gets Red Carpet Treatment

Following an 86-year journey, the “Final Out” Ball arrived at Fenway Park early this afternoon. The historic ball was delivered to the park in an armored Brinks truck by security officers of the Brinks Company. Two armored guards carried the ball in a black canvas bag down a red carpet that had been laid out along Yawkey Way and brought it inside the ballpark. It was then whisked up to the .406 Club elevator near Gate A. The ball was then carried to the Hall of Fame Club and handed-off to Red Sox President/CEO Larry Lucchino and placed in a custom-made presentation case. The ball will accompany the World Series Trophy on its tour of Massachusetts.
