The Bambino Curse weighed heavily on the Bostonians for 86 years. It was brought upon the Red Sox when Babe Ruth, otherwise known as the Bambino, was sold to the New York Yankees in 1918. Boston's baseball team wouldn't win another World Series until 2004, when the city exploded with a celebratory spirit that had been pent up for decades. Fenway Park may well be the heart of Boston, exhibiting the patriotic city's determination and struggle. It is located in the Back Bay Fens area.
