Red Sox rally to be held Tuesday

Red Sox rally to be held Tuesday

BOSTON -- As was the case in 2004, a "Rolling Rally" will welcome Boston's conquering heroes as the city celebrates the World Series-champion Red Sox.

The City of Boston announced that the rally will begin Tuesday at noon ET at Fenway Park. MLB.com and RedSox.com will provide complete coverage of the event.

And similar to 2004, players, coaches, staff and executives will board "Duck Boats" that will wind their way through Boston, ending near City Hall.

Boston Mayor Tom Menino said in a statement that closer Jonathan Papelbon will be performing his "Riverdance" many times along the route.

Unlike three years ago, however, the boats will not go into the Charles River because of concerns for the safety of Red Sox players and officials. More than one million fans lined the streets in a steady rain in 2004 for the team's first title in 86 years. Sunny skies are expected for Tuesday.
