Ramirez earns place as Boston’s first Series MVP

October 28, 2004


— Manny Ramirez owns a treasured spot in Red Sox lore -- the floppy-haired slugger is their first World Series MVP.

Ramirez and the Red Sox finished a four-game sweep of the St. Louis Cardinals with a 3-0 victory Wednesday night, giving Boston its first World Series championship since 1918.

A feared hitter throughout his stellar career, Ramirez batted .412 (7-for-17) with a homer and four RBIs against St. Louis, helping the Red Sox end 86 years of pain and futility.

Now his clutch performance in October will be remembered forever, from Kenmore Square in the heart of Boston to the mountains of Maine in upper New England.
