Relive all the greatest moments in Red Sox history through newspaper headlines of the time with this personalized Boston Red Sox book. With coverage beginning in 1903, the year of the franchise’s first World Series title, this Red Sox history book guides you through the decades, revisiting all the key moments from Fenway Park and beyond, right up until the present day. The history of the Boston Red Sox can be divided into three distinct eras, with two periods of incredible success sandwiching arguably the most infamous championship drought in the history of professional sports. At the start of the 20th century, the Sox were the best baseball team in the world.
Led by Tris Speaker and then Babe Ruth, considered by many as two of the greatest players of all time, the Red Sox won five World Series titles between the inaugural championship in 1903 and 1918. At that time, no other team had won five World Series, and it would take until 1937 for a team to win more. That team would be the New York Yankees, the beneficiaries of the sale of Babe Ruth in 1920, the catalyst of the so-called “Curse of the Gambino”. This hoodoo saw a team that had won four World Series titles in seven seasons go 86 years without a championship, losing four World Series in the process. But eventually, the tide would turn and the second period of Red Sox fertility would arrive, with World Series victories in 2004, 2007 and 2013. No other team has won more in the 21st century.
