Boston Firsts

This Wednesday, October 4th, there will be an event at The Old State House. That night Lowell Lecture series event will be Boston Firsts: From the Public Library and the Constitution to the Cream Pie and the Ready-made Suit.

Today is the anniversary of just such an event.

In 1903, the first World Series opened in Boston. The Boston Pilgrims of the American League defeated the Pittsburgh Pirates of the National League in the eighth game of a best-of-nine series.
