Three Purple Sox followers, rooting for the group to clinch the AL East title this week, had a banner day Monday — actually.
Mates Louie Iacuzzi, James Amaral and Randy Baldasarri discovered the banner made prematurely to mark the 2018 division crown in the course of a Massachusetts freeway, Boston 25 News reported Tuesday.
It apparently fell off a vendor’s supply truck on McGrath Freeway in Somerville, Mass., the place the three got here throughout it, wrapped in brown paper.
“One particular person ran it over and hit it somewhat bit,” Iacuzzi informed the TV station. “I am like, ‘Pull over, what’s it?'”

After the boys retrieved the package deal from the street, they unwrapped it to see what was inside.
“We thought it was jerseys or one thing like that,” Baldassari mentioned. “That is what it seemed like, and once we unraveled it and seen what it was, we knew it was one thing large.”
It was the banner enscribed with “2018 American League East Champions” for Fenway Park.
The Purple Sox (103-48) misplaced Tuesday to the second-place Yankees. The groups play once more Wednesday night time in New York. A Boston win would clinch the division title.
A spokesperson mentioned the group was conscious that banner had gone lacking and deliberate to ship a courier to retrieve it.
“I will give them again the banner,” Iacuzzi mentioned, “and that is going to be the good-luck appeal.”
