Boston Red Sox

The Boston Red Sox is one of the teams of the Major League Baseball’s American Eastern League Division. The team was established in the year 1901. Right from its inception, the team has achieved heights of fame when they defeated Pittsburgh Pirates in the first ever World Series in 1903. However, this was only a meteoric rise.
History of Boston Red Sox
By the year 1918, the Boston Red Sox had already won 4 major championships. But their winning streak was cut short by a string of defeats and poor performances. In fact, this was dubbed as one of the longest droughts of championship in the history of the baseball game. Finally, success came to the Boston Red Sox team when they won their sixth World Series Championship in the year 2004. The year 2003 has been a new landmark for the Boston Red Sox team. Having won two World Series, they have undoubtedly become one of the best MLB teams of the last decade. After a bit of confusion over the color of their uniform, red color was decided to be the official color of the team. The name is sometimes shortened to BoSox.
Pitfalls of the Boston Red Sox
The team passed through three different phases during 1940s, 1960s and 1980s. These years can better be dubbed as the darkest and gloomiest period of the teams on field performance. The team was vastly affected with injuries and substitutions and this was one of the major reasons for their under performance.
Things changed for the Boston Red Sox team during the decade of the 1970s. They could not win the 1975 World Series, but their approach to the game and performance was praised from all corners. They suffered a heavy defeat playing against the oft favorite team Cincinnati Reds. Despite getting a 3-0 lead, the final scores were settled at 4-3.
The 1978 pennant race also ended in disaster for the Boston Red Sox’. They lost to the Toronto Blue Jays and hence, the division title as well. The season of 1986 ushered in a new spring of hope to the team’s camp. They won the AL Eastern division title after a long span of 11 seasons. The 2004 World Series Championship was a dramatic moment for the Boston Red Sox. Splendid performance by the players, commitment on field and a desire to win fetched them the year’s World Championship title. This was a phenomenal come back to form in the history of the game. The team was again back to the top ranks.
