The Boston Red Sox kicked off their postseason push for another World Championship Monday afternoon with a spirited rally at Fenway Park. The gates opened at 3:30 p.m. for the rally that included the team's ownership, manager Terry Francona and the players. The celebration for the American League wild-card winner was hosted by Don Orsillo, a play-by-play commentator for NESN. The Sox face the Los Angeles Angels on Wednesday night in Anaheim in Game 1 of the American League Division Series. In 2007 Boston swept the Angels in the first round of the playoffs en route to the team's second World Series crown in four seasons. The first 2,500 fans who streamed into Fenway Park received a coupon good for a free hot dog and soda. Other cities with playoff teams have planned similar rallies, which have been sponsored by Major League Baseball since 2004.
