The Boston Red Sox are a Major League Baseball team based out of Boston, Massachusetts playing in the American League East Division. Baseball in Boston began in 1901, when an un-nicknamed American League team was adopted in the Massachusetts capital. In 1908, the team took on the “Red Sox” nickname and would be known as such for the rest of their history. Since 1912, the Red Sox have played their home games at Fenway Park, the oldest functioning stadium in all of Major League Baseball.
Despite unheralded success in the early 20th century, the Boston franchise was deemed cursed after having not won a World Series championship in over 85 years. In 2004, a squad referred to as “The Idiots” led by Nomar Garciaparra, Manny Ramirez, and David Ortiz, broke the curse and led the Sox to their first World Series victory since 1918. Boston has been one of the hottest teams in baseball ever since, winning their seventh championship in 2007 and eight in 2013. Some of the greatest players in the history of baseball have called Fenway home during their careers. Boston has been home to one of the greatest hitters to ever live, Ted Williams, Hall of Fame catcher Carl Yastrzemski, and the legendary Babe Ruth. Today the Sox are led by MLB superstars like David Ortiz and Dustin Pedroia.
