SPRINGFIELD, MA (WSHM) -

Besides sitting in the stands at Fenway, your local watering hole is the next best thing.

"Nothing better than having the Red Sox in the World Series to help your business out," said the manager at Christopher's Sports Tavern, Joshua Moses.

"Anytime you're with friends and family and having a good time out, it's good," said Jay Babineau, of East Longmeadow.

While the Sox are celebrating runs, business owners are doing a celebration of their own.

Christopher's Sports Tavern in Sixteen Acres has only been open a month and a half.

Moses says they've seen good business so far but it doesn't get much better than nights like this - Game One of the World Series.

"It's definitely been interesting to see how the Red Sox have helped us out and once they're not on anymore, we'll find out exactly where our business is at," Moses said.

It also doesn't hurt that Boston sports fans are infamous for being some of the most enthusiastic in the country.

"I think there's more energy, more vibrancy, you get to celebrate with your friends and strangers and you get to support the Sox," said Mark Richards, of East Longmeadow.

Over at Jt's Sports Bar in downtown Springfield, the Sox are also helping to bring in the money.

"For a Wednesday night, it can't get any better, this is fantastic," said owner of Jt's Keith Makarowski.

Springfield bar owners say they're lucky to live in a region with some of the most legendary sports teams and the fans that come out to cheer them on.

"New England fans in general are just so passionate, any time someone's doing amazing like the Red Sox, it's great for business, it really makes the year," Makarowski said.

"Go Sox all the way," Richards said.
