The Red Sox celebration tour continues.
After bringing out the World Series trophy for a brief mid-court ceremony during Thursday night’s Boston Celtics game, a number of Red Sox players stopped by nightclub The Grand to check out a performance from rapper Rick Ross and pose for photos with the trophy during the Seaport spot’s one-year anniversary party.
Among the athletes on hand for the bash were Sox players Matt Barnes, J.D. Martinez, Rick Porcello, Bobby Poyner, David Price, Chris Sale, and Blake Swihart, as well as Celtics forward Jaylen Brown, who didn’t play in the team’s 117-113 win over the Milwaukee Bucks due to a sore foot.
Executives for both the C’s and Sox were in the building, as well, with Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck, Red Sox chairman Tom Werner, and Red Sox owner John Henry (who also owns Boston Globe Media Partners) stopping by the club.
With the World Series trophy sitting in the DJ booth, Ross performed a variety of hits, including “Hustlin’,” “Pop That,” “Trap Trap Trap,” and “I’m on One.” He gave a lengthy shout-out to the team before launching into “All I Do Is Win,” the DJ Khaled track on which he’s featured.
That’s the same song that blared through the speakers as Sox players enjoyed a champagne-soaked celebration at Icon Nightclub earlier this week. The bubbly flowed at The Grand on Thursday, too: The club popped 100 bottles of Belaire champagne following a replay of Game 5’s last out on the nightclub’s 70-foot LED wall.
