The Red Sox home run celebration without a laundry cart is ingenious


The Boston Red Sox responded to adversity on all fronts Monday night.

After a series loss to the New York Yankees that dropped them to 2-6 in their last eight games, the Red Sox pounced on the Toronto Blue Jays at their “home” stadium in Buffalo, scoring three homers. in the first round. en route to a 13-4 victory.

But the Sox ran into another roadblock after rookie Jarren Duran launched his first major league tour to kick off: the visitors’ dugout had no laundry cart, the preferred vehicle of the Boston home run celebration.

So the Red Sox improvised.

Here’s Kike Hernandez taking a ride on top of a cooler after his first round explosion:

Not quite the same, but it will be fine in a pinch.

The Red Sox ran into a similar problem earlier this month at the Oakland Coliseum, so it’s good to see them show their ingenuity to keep the tradition alive.

Boston has used that cooler a lot, too: the team clubbed six home runs Monday night, and their three long balls in the first inning were a franchise first in a road game.

The Red Sox have two more days of cooler use in Buffalo before returning to the comfort of their homes Thursday for a four-game streak against the Yankees.
