Boston Red Sox: Game Schedule, Tickets and more...
The Boston Red Sox are a household name, even to folks who do not follow sports closely. Located in Boston, Massachusetts, this professional American baseball team competes in Major League Baseball (MLB). They are part of the American League’s East division, playing against the Baltimore Orioles, Tampa Bay Rays, Toronto Blue Jays, and – of course – New York Yankees.
Founded in 1901 as one of the original 8 charter teams, the Boston Red Sox have been a stable force in MLB, which is part of what makes the franchise iconic. They have called Fenway Park their home since 1912. With a stadium nicknamed “America’s Most Beloved Ballpark”, “Friendly Fenway” and “The Cathedral of Baseball” by MLB itself, it is easy to see that many fans of not just the Red Sox but of baseball as a whole revere the team’s contribution to the sport. Fenway Park has hosted the World Series 11 times, and it has also opened its field for football games, concerts, and political events. In fact, it has seen a tremendous amount of Boston history and is pending a Boston Landmark for its social, historical, cultural, architectural, and aesthetic significance to New England and the United States.
Part of what makes the Boston Red Sox such a force in pop culture are their team triumphs. The Boston Red Sox have won 9 World Series championships and have played in a total of 14 World Series competitions. The MVP award – which is decided by votes within the Baseball Writers’ Association of America – have been given to Boston Red Sox players 12 times. Rookie of the Year has been awarded to Red Sox players 6 times. The team has also had an abundance of Home Run Stars, Batting Champions, Era Champions, and Gold Gloves. Add to these achievements the number of divisional and regional successes, and it is clear that the Boston Red Sox are stiff competition.
Each year, home games bring in around 3 million fans per season. Unsurprisingly, some of their most attended games ever are against the New York Yankees. The Red Sox – Yankees rivalry is one of the most intense, longstanding, and famous in all of professional sports. It goes back over 100 years. The New York Times and Boston Globe have both called it “the greatest rivalry in all of sports”, but the inimitably fierce competition is felt far beyond the East Coast. USA Today writer Hal Bodley even called it “sport’s ultimate rivalry”. Their head-to-head matches are unforgettable and a must-see for anyone who has the opportunity.
