BOSTON RED SOX ALL-TIME TEAM

A 28-player roster for the Boston Red Sox.

The history of the Red Sox is a story in three acts. In Act I, the Sox won five titles in the first two decades of the twentieth century, delighting the famed Royal Rooters. In Act II, the franchise suffered through lost decades before losing four World Series, each in a seventh game. Act III was the tremendous success of the team in the early part of the 21st century, when the Red Sox finally slayed the rival Yankees, and won four championships in 15 years.

The Red Sox All-Time Team is sprinkled generously with greatness: legendary pitchers and tremendous sluggers, especially in their deep outfield. There’s not enough room to get all of the great outfielders into the lineup, and some tough choices had to be made.¬†
