The Red Sox have an illustrious baseball history, starting play as the Boston Americans back in 1901. Armed with one of the best pitchers in baseball history, Cy Young, Boston won the World Series in their third Major League season. That would be just the tip of the iceberg for the Red Sox, as they would go on to win the World Series again in 1912, 1915, 1916 and 1918, the last three of which were won with the help of Babe Ruth. After Ruth was sold to the Yankees, the Red Sox went 85 years without another World Series title. Not winning a championship didn’t mean that the Sox didn’t put together strong teams. Ted Williams brought Boston to the World Series in 1946 and Carl Yastrzemski reached the World Series in 1967 and 1975. Roger Clemens and Wade Boggs nearly won the World Series in 1986, but a ground ball got by Boston first baseman Bill Buckner in Game 6 against the Mets and ultimately cost the Sox the championship. The Curse of the Bambino was finally lifted in 2004, when Boston captured the franchise’s sixth World Series victory. In 2007 the Sox added their seventh championship. Boston made it a dynasty in 2013, winning a 3rd World Series title in a decade, placing players like Dustin Pedroia, and David Ortiz among the legendary players in MLB history. The Red Sox have retired the numbers of seven former players and managers. Score with TicketCity - the place to go for Boston Red Sox baseball tickets.
2016 Red Sox Season Preview
The Boston Red Sox struggled through another season of injuries and bad luck in a difficult AL East last season. But the BoSox are retooled, and back to make another run at the World Series. Boston grabbed possibly the most coveted free agent on the market last year, when they signed ace lefty David Price. Price has much experience in the AL East, and gives the 2016 Red Sox the stability at the top of the rotation that they lacked a season ago. The Red Sox also brought in veteran relief arms in Robbie Ross, and Junichi Tazawa which will help shape what was a shaky bullpen a season ago. With veteran leadership in Pablo Sandoval, Dustin Pedroia, and David Ortiz back to lead the 2016 Red Sox, Boston will be a team to contend with, but will they have the pieces to contend in a division where 4 teams have a legitimate shot of winning? That is something that will have to be answered as the season progresses, but if the Red Sox have taught us anything, it is to never count them down. Boston Red Sox Tickets are always in high demand, and that shouldn’t change with a talented, hungry group looking to right the ship in 2016.
