Where to watch the World Series in and around Portland

Written by: Aimsel Ponti

It’s been five years since the Red Sox last made it to (and won!) the World Series, and although it doesn’t come close to the 86-year drought that was finally snapped in 2004, it’s still very exciting to see the boys from Beantown in the fall classic. One fun fact is that the manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers is none other than Dave Roberts. In case that names doesn’t ring a bell, Roberts is the pinch runner who stole second base during Game 4 of the 2004 American League Championship Series against the New York Yankees. That steal changed everything and we all know what happened next.

Other than catching a game at Fenway Park, a sports bar is the second best place to watch a game because you know the drama will be high and you’ll likely make a bunch of new best friends every time a spectacular catch is made (we’re looking at you, JBJ and Mookie!), every time a ball sails out of the yard, every time a third strike is called against a Dodgers batter and every time an unexpected moment of Red Sox World Series, glory happens.

Here are some Portland area spots where you can watch World Series games. Game 1 is on Tuesday night!

BTW, the 2018 Boston Red Sox roster has nine former members of the Portland Sea Dogs and we’ll be cheering extra loud for them.
