Does anyone know which side of the park the World Series flag will be on? With Fundamentals, it looks like the past flags are on the right field side. I'm looking to buy tickets and the flag location will help me determine which seats to buy.

Thats the banner. I haven't heard anything about the flag. You would think too that they will raise the flag Sunday night...

That's what I'm trying to figure out. Are the banner and the flag one in the same?

Thats the weird thing, they keep saying banner ceremony but you would think the flag would be apart of it.

Someone e-mail Brooks!!!!!!!!

I'm thinking this is the 'flag'. Which is odd.

It is. They will be raising the AL Central Division Champions, AL Champions, and World Series Champions flags on Sunday, along with the banner that will be in the ballpark at least all season long.

I walked past the park this afternoon, it looked like there were banners on each of the light posts high above the scoreboard.

Based the the picture in this thread I figured they put those banners on all of the lightposts in the outfield for just this season (maybe one if for Central Division, one for AL, one for WS). But I assume there will be a permanent WS flag in the style of the other flags above the outfield boards. I hope there is.

EDIT: Assuming there is a flag it would be in the right field corner, if they continue to do the flags in the same manner (chronologically from left field to right field). Also, bring back the 1901 and 1906 flags!

I've noticed the flag location before and if my memory is right, then the 1917 World Series flag is closest to the scoreboard and just to the left (if you are facing it.) The 1959 pennant flag is on the other side and the division championships are further out.
It seems like the weight of the Sox post season success directly correlates to the distance from the scoreboard in center.

Maybe the other light tower posts will have the other World Series banners, 1917 and 1906? Just speculation here. Y'know, they can unveil the 2005 one in dramatic fashion to "We Are the Champions" :D: Man, am i ever stoked for Opening Night.

No it says 2005

Now I put this question out. Did MLB instruct the team to have the banner/flag say World SERIES champion instead of just World Champions? Is this because of the WBC?

Boston for example still said World Champions last year

Would it have been too redundant to leave the flags up, even with the addition of the new banners? I love the banners and everything but I always thought those flags looked great as well.
