There's a new trophy in town

But not the one you're thinking of: Boston Red Sox 2018 world series trophy coming to Halifax

It’s not quite the Raptors’ NBA Championship trophy, but the 2018 Major League World Championship trophy won by baseball's Boston Red Sox is coming to Halifax this weekend. The Bluenose BoSox Brotherhood is bringing it all the way from Boston for a tour of the town on Sunday and Monday. Unfortunately, Bluenose Brotherhood’s Jim Prime says that the trophy will not be making its way to Halifax on the Yarmouth Ferry. “It was considered, but the logistics—time involved and other commitments in New England—made it impossible. I've wanted to do that for a long time,” he says. “Some day it'll happen.”

Bay Ferries Limited themselves announced a delay in the re-commencement of the international ferry service between Yarmouth and Bar Harbour, Maine earlier this month, citing “complexity of the construction and approvals process” of moving service from Portland to the new spot. It hopes to be up and running mid-summer. And at least Boston can still export some of its hardware, after losing the Stanley Cup finals to the St. Louis Blues in game 7 of the NHL Stanley Cup Finals this week.
