BOSTON - The Boston Red Sox will celebrate their 2018 World Series victory with a parade on the streets of Beantown.
Tom Warner told Boston 25 News Sunday night after the game the parade would be Wednesday morning at 11 a.m., but John Henry said, "Call the mayor."
"The Mayor is in charge," Henry followed up.
Mayor Marty Walsh held a news conference Monday to confirm the plan for 11 a.m. on Wednesday.
