About Boston Red Sox
The Boston Red Sox, the member of the Major League Baseball’s American League Eastern Division has its roots in Toledo, Ohio, 1912. The current team name, Red Sox, is based on an old-fashioned form of plural socks and was implemented in 1907 by its owner John Taylor.
Red Sox has been a leading team in the new league since the 20th century starting off in 1903 by defeating the Pittsburgh Pirates in the first World Series and won four more championships by 1918. Later the team went into one of the longest championships in the baseball history which ended in 2004 when the team won their sixth World Series Championship. The Boston Red Sox have competed in four ALCS since 2003, have won two World Series, and have become known as arguably the most successful MLB team in the history.
The standard uniform for the team has been in use since 1979 and is white with red piping around the neck also including “RED SOX” printed in red letters and outlined in blue. One alternate home uniform jersey is also red worn with white pants and “RED SOX” is put on view across the chest in blue letters outlined in white.
