At Boston’s parade for the World Series champion Red Sox, beer cans that were flung at the duck boat carrying the team hit Manager Alex Cora and the MLB Commissioner’s Trophy, and also injured a fan.READ MORE: LA County Not Closing COVID Vaccine Super Sites Despite Drop In Demand
After being hit by the spewing can, Cora pointed out the 19-year-old man in the crowd that had thrown it, and he was arrested. In the meantime, the team says the trophy has already been repaired.READ MORE: Martin Luther King Jr. Had Strong Relationship With LA During Civil Rights Movement
