---- — The National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown has unveiled its new “Autumn Glory” exhibit, which honors the World Series championship of the 2013 Boston Red Sox.

The “Autumn Glory” exhibit at the Hall of Fame honors the reigning World Series Champions. The 2013 Red Sox exhibit features a number of artifacts from the team’s win, including the dirt covered spikes worn by closer Koji Uehara throughout the series, a bat used by first baseman David Ortiz in the post season, a jacket worn by  umpire crew chief John Hirschbeck during the World Series and a number zero from the Fenway Park scoreboard in Game 6 of the World Series. 

The victory is the franchise’s eighth title, and the third in 10 years.

The exhibit opens today and will be up until sometime in December of next year, where it will be replaced with an “Autumn Glory” exhibit honoring 2014’s World Series champions. Events honoring the Red Sox’s victory will take place throughout 2014 at the Hall of Fame, according to a press release from the Hall.
