ST. LOUIS -- The champagne wasn't even dry in the visitors' clubhouse at Busch Stadium when artifacts from Boston's 2004 postseason -- to be sent to the Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, N.Y. -- were being gathered.

The artifacts from Boston's 2004 World Series championship will be added to the museum's "Autumn Glory" exhibit, which will be unveiled in the near future. The Red Sox memorabilia will remain on exhibit until next year's World Series.

Among the items that will be on display:

  • The jersey worn by Derek Lowe in clinching Game 4 of the World Series. Lowe was the first pitcher to win three clinching games in one postseason.

  • The bat Johnny Damon used in Game 4 as well as his cap from the Series.

  • The bat World Series MVP Manny Ramirez used in Game 4 to tie the record for getting hits in 17 consecutive World Series games.

  • The glove used by shortstop Orlando Cabrera, who did not make an error the entire postseason.

  • The cap worn by ace Pedro Martinez, who threw seven shutout innings in Game 3.

  • The spikes worn by Keith Foulke, the closer who was marvelous throughout the postseason and recorded the final out of Boston's first championship since 1918.

  • The spikes worn by Curt Schilling, who, gimpy right ankle and all, willed out a victory in Game 2 of the World Series.

    The Hall of Fame is also expecting to receive a home jersey from David Ortiz, who had three walk-off hits in this postseason. Ortiz is also likely to provide a game bat from the World Series.
