The World Series starts off on Tuesday, and the New England Patriots have a few reasons to cheer on.
Patriots head coach Bill Belichick will narrate Fox’s opening to Game 1 of the World Series. The information was confirmed by several sources, including Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports.
Rosenthal noted that the airing of the open “How do you make history? Is set to begin at 8:00 p.m. ET.
The head coach is thrilled to see the Red Sox making a bid for Boston’s eleventh championship since the Pats hoisted the first Lombardi Trophy after defeating the St. Louis Rams in Super Bowl XXXVI in 2002.
“It was awesome. I was honored they asked me to do it. The World Series is one of the great sporting events in this country, and has great tradition to it, especially with these two franchises. I’m very humbled to have been asked to participate in that. Look forward to watching some of it,” Belichick said during the conference call on Tuesday.
We have seen Belichick at a few Red Sox games this season, and he supports the 2018 squad. The head coach watched Boston’s walk off win in August wearing a Red Sox hat. Now Belichick has the chance to watch the team trying to claim the fourth World Series title since 2004.
“I don’t think they need any. Whatever they need to do, they can do. Hit, pitch, run, play defense, take pitches. They’re good,” Belichick said when reporters asked if he has any words of encouragement for the team.
The first pitch in Game 1 of the 2018 World Series is set to begin at 8:09 p.m. ET.
We bet Belichick is super happy about the Red Sox. The same applies to the Patriots in general. Boston athletes have been really successful this year.
