Boston, St. Louis Newspapers Front Pages Treat World Series Obstruction Differently (PHOTOS)

Not surprisingly, the obstruction call on the final play of Game 3 of the 2013 World Series was received differently in St. Louis than it was in Boston. It was also portrayed a bit differently by local newspapers reporting for readers in either city.

Both the Boston Globe and Boston Herald played up the contentiousness of those final moments of Game 3 while the St. Louis Post-Dispatch was a bit more focused on the result. For the Globe, the obstruction ruling was the "much-disputed call." The Herald referred to it as the "controversial call."

In St. Louis, the coverage was understandably a bit more upbeat as the local nine wasn't beaten on Saturday night. According to the deck accompanying the Post-Dispatch headline, the call was simply an "umpire's ruling."

On the front page of the Sports section, the Globe opted for a photo more indicative of the emotion among Red Sox players and fans.
