 Curse of the Bambino - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Curse of the Bambino (1918– 2004) was an urban myth or scapegoat cited as a reason for the failure of the Boston Red Sox baseball team to win the World Series for 86 years after they sold Babe Ruth, sometimes called The Bambino, to the New York Yankees.
The flip side of the "curse" was New York's success—after the sale, the once-lackluster Yankees became one of the most successful franchises in North American professional sports.
In 1949, the Red Sox needed to win just one of the last two games of the season to win the pennant, but lost both games to the Yankees.
