Boston Red Sox Logo – The Boston Red Sox (Boston Red Sox in Castilian) are a team of baseball from professional baseball in America. They belong to the Eastern Division of the American League. They were created in 1893 as minor league franchise in the city of Toledo, Ohio in the Western League (Western League). They moved to Boston when that league became the American League in 1900.
The name Red Sox was chosen by owner John I. Taylor in the season of 1907 and is based on an obsolete way of calling the U.S. average. The old Boston team of the National League (the Braves) had received originally as the name Red Stockings and Red Sox had used, which inspired the owner of the American League team to use this nickname. Before 1908, the American League team used dark blue stockings and had no official nickname. They called simply the Boston (the Bostons) or the Baseball Club of Boston (Boston Baseball Club).
