Some Red Sox fans scored a victory ride on the Green Line Wednesday, when passengers were “pleasantly surprised” by the appearance of a fellow T-rider: the team’s most recent World Series trophy, according to a tweet from the MBTA.
The crowd-pleasing visit was part of the team’s annual “Gift of Sox” social media effort, according to Zineb Curran, a spokeswoman for the Sox.

Sox staff brought aboard the prized possession, which the team earned this past October with their win over the Los Angeles Dodgers, at the Kenmore stop by Fenway Park.
From there to Government Center and back, eager supporters were able to be photographed with the 2018 accolade, and photos released by the MBTA show riders of all ages taking up the opportunity.

Throughout the day, the Sox hosted a variety of other events around the city — and online, the organization granted wishes to fans, including requests for opening day tickets and merchandise.
It’s been a wild one… That’s a wrap on #TheGiftOfSox Day 2018!
Now for tickets to go on sale this Saturday… ☺️
