-- A Red Sox World Series documentary is set to premiere in Boston next week at the Emerson Colonial Theatre.

"The 2018 World Series: Damage Done" will debut on Monday with a red carpet at 6 p.m. before a 7 p.m. start time.

It chronicles the team’s 11-3 postseason run and will be like Red Sox porn for fans.

Alex Cora and all four World Series trophies will be in attendance for the 80-minute documentary produced by MLB.

Uzo Aduba, a Mass. native, of Orange Is the New Black, will narrate the film.

-- An Irish soccer team is apologizing and being investigated after falsely reporting one of its players died in a car accident.

The team’s game against Arklow Town on Saturday was postponed and a minute of silence was held before other games across the league.

The league also placed a death notice in an Irish newspaper, offering "heartfelt condolences" to his family and Ballybrack FC.

Meanwhile, Fernando Nuno La-Fuente, the player for Dublin’s Ballybrack, was actually alive and well in Spain.

"The young lad didn't die in a motorbike accident last Thursday. He went back to Spain four or five weeks ago apparently,” league chairman David Moran said.

Ballybrack released a statement on the matter after finding out he isn’t dead:

"It has come to the attention of both the club, senior players and the management team that a gross error of judgement has occurred emanating from correspondence sent from a member of the senior set-up management team to the Leinster Senior League. An emergency meeting was held and the person in question has been relieved of all footballing duties, within Ballybrack FC, its senior team and roles within the club itself. The club has contacted Fernando to confirm his whereabouts, wellbeing and are thankful for his acceptance of our apology on this matter. This grave and unacceptable mistake was completely out of character and was made by a person who has been experiencing severe personal difficulties unbeknownst to any other members of the club. At this stage we can only offer our sincere apologies to the Leinster Senior League, our opponents Arklow Town FC and the host of clubs and football people who made contact with us or offered messages of support in recent days."

The Leinster Senior League plans to investigate the matter.

"The Leinster Senior League will co-operate with all relevant agencies in the investigation of this matter,” it said. “And the league will also deal with this issue through their own internal disciplinary procedures.”
