If you’re a Boston Red Sox fan, you’ll be in heaven at Centennial Field Sunday, when the Vermont Lake Monsters (short season A; NY-Penn League) will have four BoSox World Series trophies on display, including the 1912 trophy.
Joining the 1912 trophy on display will be trophies from the 2004, 2007 and 2013 World Series. Fittingly, the Lake Monsters are hosting Boston’s short-season team, the Lowell Spinners.
Boston won the 1912 World Series four games to three (with one tie on account of darkness) against the New York Giants. The sterling silver trophy was presented to Boston manager Jake Stahl following the clinching victory, but is now privately owned.
“We could not be more excited to have not just the three recent Red Sox World Series trophies, but the 1912 trophy is not normally available for public viewing,” Lake Monsters General Manager Nate Cloutier said. “This is a rare opportunity for all baseball fans to see a part of the Red Sox history.”
The 1912 Red Sox have a special connection to Vermont and Centennial Field as former University of Vermont baseball players Larry Gardner and Ray Collins were members of the World Series Champions. Gardner clinched the championship with a series-ending sacrifice fly in the bottom of the 10th inning that gave Boston a 3-2 victory.
All four trophies will be displayed on the main concourse at Centennial Field Sunday beginning when the gates open at 4 p.m. and will be available for viewing until 6 p.m.
