The day: October 30, 2013. In game six of the World Series, the Boston Red Sox rout the St. Louis Cardinals 6-1 to earn their eighth World Series Championship, winning it at Fenway Park for the first time since 1918.

To commemorate this special championship victory, we’re very excited to announce a new, limited-edition tote, made out of the rain-delay tarp that protected the infield during the 2013 season – the tarp that was there, at Fenway Park, when the Sox clinched the title.

 

This isn’t the first time we’ve offered such a unique piece of Red Sox memorabilia. After the 2011 and 2012 seasons, we commemorated our partnership with Fenway Park by turning the infield’s rain-delay tarp into iconic Boat and Tote Bags for fans. The first bag celebrated the 100-year anniversary of both L.L.Bean and Fenway Park, while the second allowed us to offer our support for the One Fund Boston after the terrible tragedy at the 2013 Boston Marathon.

For this year’s tote, we created something completely new. Like all our Boat and Tote Bags, it’s made right here at our factory in Maine. Trimmed with red handles carrying the dates of every Red Sox World Series Championship victory, the tote also features a specially designed baseball diamond-inspired patch with the Red Sox logo. Inside the tote is a pocket that’s also made from the rain tarp.

The tote was constructed from the 2013 infield tarp at our factory in Brunswick, Maine.

This tote will be available for $59.95, and 20% of net proceeds will go to the Jimmy Fund, a non-profit organization that supports Boston’s Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Since 1948, the Jimmy Fund has been raising funds for adult and pediatric cancer care and research to improve the chances of survival for cancer patients around the world.

 

Starting Saturday, September 20, you’ll be able to pick up your Red Sox World Series Champions Commemorative Boat and Tote® at the following L.L.Bean stores:

 

 

 

There will also be a limited number of totes available on Saturday, September 20, at the Yawkey Way Store, across from Fenway Park, starting at 9 a.m.

    What about The fans who don’t live in the Boston area ? We are part of the RED SOX NATION, Just as loyal. We have shed tears also. I am so happy that my Father saw them win one before He passed on, In his coffin is a World Series Champions Hat. I think you should have a lottery for a chance to buy one.

    I’m 75 miles from the closest store! Wish I could order online and save the gas and environment some from unnecessary driving.

    Can you please make some available online?

  6. Joan Stone | September 16, 2014 | 10:30 pm

    Why aren’t they being offered online?

    for a 5.00 donation to the jimmy fund you should give a chance to win a bag. you should have this sweepstakes starting 9/17/2014. its just an idea.

    I truly do like the bag, it would be a better bag if it had a zipper. The only problem I have is, I kive too far from LL.Bean and cannot drive that far.

    Not fair that I am a loyal online customer and cannot access the Red Sox tote purchase on line….

  11. Paula | October 7, 2014 | 8:42 pm

    I happen to live close enough, but agree that some should be available online for those who don’t. Also, wish the bag had a zipper or some outside pockets.

    Unfortunate that they are no longer available. They’re selling for over $400 on EBAY. Obviously those people who bought them didn’t really care about the bag like the rest of us who couldn’t get one.
