Red Sox ride home run laundry cart to ALCS against Astros

FILE - In this Sept. 29, 2021, file photo, Toronto Blue Jays' Santiago Espinal puts the home run jacket onto Bo Bichette (11) after he homered during the third inning of the team's baseball game against the New York Yankees in Toronto. Even in baseball, where traditionalists sneer at anything that might seem disrespectful or undignified, teams haven't been afraid to show some personality. The Phillies have a straw Home Run Hat, the Rockies have “homer shades” sunglasses and the Blue Jays have a blue blazer for members of their “HR Club.” The New York Mets ride a stuffed pony through the dugout to celebrate homers; the San Diego Padres pass around a seven-pound bejeweled necklace dubbed the “Swagg Chain.”
