The Red Sox head to the playoffs for the first time since 2009.

People who are excited about the upcoming series against Tampa were gearing up at Roster inside Providence Place Mall Thursday afternoon.

"Oh ya it's great they did fantastic this year for once," said Alex Smith who picked up some new Red Sox hats.

"I came to buy Red Sox stuff so I could have it to kind of flaunt it," said Jim Hope who is visiting from California.

Store manager Jay Belanger says customer traffic is picking up.

"The second half of the season really people are excited to come in, support the team and want to be looking their best," said Belanger.

They also hope the Red Sox are the best.

"I am way excited; I think this is gonna be another year they go all the way," said Hope.

The first game in the series starts at 3:07 Friday afternoon at Fenway.
