Summary
In 1918 the Boston Red Sox won their fifth World Series, thanks in great part to a young pitching and hitting sensation from the slums of Baltimore, named George Herman Ruth, a.k.a. The Babe, or The Bambino. A year later, after not advancing to the playoffs, Red Sox owner Harry Frazee sold the Babe to the New York Yankees. In turn, the Bronx Bombers went on to win an incredible 26 World Series titles. Die-hard Red Sox fans who have lived thier entire lives lamenting this trade have come to refer to it as "The Curse of The Bambino." Includes the highlights of the '04 playoff victories and The World Series sweep that finally reversed "The Curse."
