Here are some interesting facts about the Boston Red Sox:
The franchise was founded in 1901 as one of the eight franchises to join the American League (AL). The team had one of the longest championship droughts in baseball history which totaled 86 years. This was known as the “Curse of the Bambino” after the team traded Babe Ruth to their arch rival, the New York Yankees. When the team won the World Series in 2013, they became the first team to win three World Series championships in the 21st century, as they had also won in 2004 and 2007.
The Boston Red Sox logo has had ten logo variations, including the original design back in 1901 when they were known as the Boston Americans. See the different Boston Red Sox logo designs that they have had over the years.
