Adding insult to injury as the Los Angeles Dodgers trailed the Boston Red Sox 5-1 late in Game 5, a clever online prankster decided to update Sox first baseman/outfielder Steve Pearce’s Wikipedia page.
“Steven Pearce is an American professional baseball left fielder and first baseman for the Boston Red Sox of Major League Baseball, the entry begins. But that’s when the author gets creative. “He also owns the Los Angeles Dodgers baseball team and is the new mayor of Los Angeles.”
Pearce had a dominant World Series, capped by his 2 homer performance in the deciding Game 5 to win the World Series MVP.
