Boston Red Sox, an American professional baseball group based totally in Boston. One of the most storied franchises in American sports activities, the Red Sox have gained 9 World Series titles and 14 American League (AL) pennants.

Founded in 1901, the franchise (then unofficially known as the Boston Americans) changed into one of the 8 constitutional participants of the American League. The team performed on the Huntington Avenue Grounds from 1901 to 1911 and moved to Fenway Park in 1912. The oldest of all modern predominant league ballparks, Fenway is understood for its quirky functions, the maximum well-known of which is the 37-foot 2-inch (11.3-meter) left field wall called the “Green Monster.” The group formally took the name Boston Red Sox (“BoSox” or “Sox” for quick) in 1908, adapting it from the Boston Red Stockings, the unique call of Boston’s first expert baseball team (now the Atlanta Braves).

Boston loved immediate success with its celebrity Cy Young, the finest pitcher of his technology, and their talented third baseman and manager, Jimmy Collins. Boston won the first actual World Series, in 1903, with the aid of defeating the Pittsburgh Pirates and persisted its successful run in the 1910s, prevailing 4 greater championships (1912, 1915, 1916, and 1918) with lineups that blanketed center fielder Tris Speaker (1907–15), pitcher Smokey Joe Wood (1908–15), and a younger pitcher-became-outfielder named Babe Ruth (1914–19).
