THE CURSE OF BAMBINO
It was an 86-year wait until the Red Sox won their sixth World Series, a drought that has been called “The Curse of the Bambino” because of the reputed origin of it, the Red Sox selling Babe Ruth to the rival New York Yankees two years after their world title in 1918.
A number of the most famous World Series events have occurred during this time period, including Enos Slaughter’s “crazy rush” in 1946, “Impossible Dream” in 1967, and “Carlton Fisk’s home run” in 1975.
They were the first team in the twenty-first century to win four World Series championships with their triumph in the 2018 World Series. They previously won titles in 2004, 2007, 2013, and 2018.
One of the most storied rivalries in professional sports in the United States is between the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees.
