Boston, MA Factoid
How long does it take for a curse to end? For the Red Sox, the dreaded Curse of the Bambino lasted from 1920 until their celebrated World Series victory over the St. Louis Cardinals in 2004. As the story goes, team owner Harry Frazee sold Babe Ruth to the hated New York Yankees in order to finance Broadway musicals. Before the infamous "trade for cash," the Red Sox won five World Series titles; over the next several decades, they came close many times, but the curse was always there to beak their hearts ... that is until 2004.
