FOXBORO -- If we know one thing about Bill Belichick, it's he isn't one for the spotlight, but he does enjoy history.

This seems to be why he agreed to be the voiceover in the FOX open for Game 1 of the 2018 World Series, which aired Tuesday night.

"I was honored to do it," he said Wednesday. "The World Series is a great event. That’s one that, as a kid, there was no Super Bowl. That's how far back I go. There was the World Series, championship boxing match. That was really the big event. That was a big event in sports. Yeah, that's always got a special place.

"Two great franchises and a big win for the Sox last night."

Belichick does have a connection to the Red Sox as he is close friends with Tony La Russa, the special assistant to Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski.

The Patriots coach has attended a few games this season dating back to spring training.
