What font do the Boston Red Sox use?

See related links

The Boston Red Sox write their logo in a font / typeface that they haven't changed in a really long time. I have tried to find out the exact font, too, but haven't been able to.

However, there are a lot of talented font designers who have created Boston Red Sox font sets that come really close, and would be great for any Red Sox fan project.

Willie Mays

Did Willie Mays tryout for the Boston Red Sox?

No. The Red Sox didn't have a black player until Pumpsie Green joined the club in 1959. Ten years earlier, the general manager of Boston's AA team in Birmingham, Alabama contacted them about Mays, who at the time was an 18-year-old phenom with the Birmingham Black Barons. Despite the rave reviews, Boston general manager Joe Cronin wasn't interested. Two years later, Mays was a New York Giants star and the National League Rookie of the Year.

How did the Boston Red Sox get their name?

The Boston Red Sox got their name from the Red Stockings team that once played in Cincinnati. A few Cincinnati players moved the team to Boston taking the Red Stockings name with them. Eventually the Boston Red Stockings adopted the name the Boston Braves; the club is now based in Atlanta, and still retains red as one of its uniform colors. The Boston Red Sox, established in 1901, adopted their version of the old nickname in 1908..

How and why was Boston founded?

Boston was founded by wayward Puritans, who - for whatever resons - sought to get away from Plymouth. The Reverend William Blackstone was the first to settle there, building a house on what is now Beacon Hill - one of three hills that made up the Boston area - in 1624. Blackstone is also considered to be the first Christian to settle in Rhode Island. Keep in mind that this was a much thinner piece of land, as much of modern Boston lies on recently-placed landfill. Puritan settlers of the Massacusetts Bay Colony, who were on the less receptive Mishawum(Charlestown) Peninsula, eventually crossed the river and joined Blackstone's growing settlement. This was the basis of Modern Boston.

Beacon Hill was originally three hills(thus the word Tremont), two of which were leveled for real estate purposes by industrious men. One was used to fill in "the Back Bay," and the other was leveled to fill in what is now known as Charles Street at the foot of Beacon Hill, preventing the Crarles River from further encroachment. More importantly, the fill was also used to level the "West End" area and provide a stable footing for the North Station - where textiles from the City of Lowell could finally reach Boston by train. Mr. Lowell bbbuilt his first textile mill on the Charles River in the city of Waltham, but soon found more water power was needed. Investors bought a vast amount of land at the confluence of the Merrimack and Nashua Rivers, designed and built their city of canals, mills, bridges and the City was named after Lowell shortly after his passing. The Middlesex Canal had been dug from Boston to Lowell before the advent of trains, with horses pulling barges. Extremely inefficient and costly, this was used for perhaps a decade before the demolition of Trimount - leaving only Beacon Hill.

Did Boston have a name prior to being called Boston?

Originally, Boston was named Tremontaine (three mountains). This was in reference to the three large hills found on the Shawmut Peninsula. It's a good thing the name didn't stick because today only one of the three hills remains (Beacon). The other two were removed to supply fill material for Back Bay.

Boston was named after Boston, Lincolnshire, England. Back then many of the town's prominent citizens had emigrated from the English village.

What is the curse of the Bambino?

The Boston Red Sox won the World Series in 1918. After the 1919 season (December 26 to be exact), Sox owner Harry Frazee (who had purchased the defending World Champions in 1917) sold Ruth to the New York Yankees for $100,000 and a $300,000 loan. His reasons: money to fund a theatrical production. Frazee was also a theatre producer. After the 1923 season, Frazee sold the Sox for a little over $1 million to a group of businessmen from Ohio. They had finished in last place that season.

AnswerThe Curse of the Bambino is when the Boston Red Sox traded Babe Ruth for $125,000 at the end of the 1919 season. Ed Barrow, the manager at the time, decided that Babe Ruth was not worth the trouble, so he traded him to the Yankees, which started the Yankees/Red Sox feud. Just before leaving for New York, Babe Ruth told reporters quote: "Without me, the Red Sox will never win another World Series. AnswerBabe Ruth wasn't the only great player Red Sox' owner Harry Frazee sent to the Yankees. Among them were the best players from the 1918 champion Red Sox including pitchers Carl Mays, Sam Jones, Herb Pennock, Bullet Joe Bush, as well as SS Everett Scott, who held the record for most consecutive games played until it was broken by Lou Gehrig. These were some of the top players of their time and they helped start the Yankees Dynasty. If one believes in curses, it really should have been called "Frazee's Folly." AnswerThe Boston Red Sox won the world series in 1918. At the end of the 1919 season the Red Sox sold Babe Ruth to the New York Yankees for $125,000. AFter this the Red Sox went on a 86 year drought without winning the World Series. In some years they almost won, but something always happened. Bucky Dent, Bill Buckner, and others. In 2004 the Red Sox finnally won the World Series breaking the curse.
