Fenway Goes Wild

The Red Sox lost to the Blue Jays last night, and had to wait for the results of the Texas-Anaheim game to see if they can clinch the American League Wild Card playoff berth. When Texas lost on the west coast, the players celebrated in the locker room. The media was not allowed into the clubhouse, so as players came out of the door to talk, a mob scene ensued.
