The 1903 World Series

Written by: George Chittenden : 14 Feb 2020

This brilliant photo was taken on Oct 3rd, 1903 during the first modern World Series to be played in Major League Baseball. After a bitter-rivalry the well-established National League and newly established American League agreed to settle their differences and compete against each other and the World Series was born.

The tournament ran from October 1st – 13th and the Boston Americans who had finished first in the American League won the 1903 World Series in eight games over the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Boston Americans later became known as the Boston Red Sox. This photo was taken were they played their home games, the Huntington Avenue Grounds in Boston just before the third game. The photo is believed to have been taken from the roof of a warehouse across the street.
