This is a Starter jacket for the Boston Red Sox in their navy blue and red colors. The Boston Red Sox are one of Major League Baseball's oldest franchises. Rivaling the New York Yankees in the American League East division has not been easy for them as over the past century they watched the Yanks win 27 World Series Championships. It was said that the Boston Red Sox were cursed (Curse of The Bambino) when they sold Babe Ruth to the NY Yankees in the year 1919. Prior to that year the Red Sox had won 5 World Series' (4 in just 6 seasons) and didn't win again for almost 100 years. In 2004 the Red Sox faced the NY Yankees in the ALCS and won 4 games straight, coming back from three games to none, to win the series. They did it with a team that included Curt Schilling and Pedro Martinez as starting pitchers with big bats Manny Ramirez and David Ortiz. They won again in 2007 with a slightly different roster. This jacket represents all of the history that is the Boston Red Sox and fans will not hesitate to pick up this classic piece of sports memorabilia.
