It is overlooked that the when the Western League became the AL in the fall of 1900, Boston was not one of the eight teams. The AL was supposed to be in Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit,Buffalo, Milwaukee, Washington, Baltimore, and Philadelphia but for better of for worse the AL decided to go against the National League in Boston and Buffalo became Boston.

Milwaukee became the St Louis Browns, and Baltimore became you know who. The AL would then remain unchanged for 50 years until the Browns moved to Baltimore and Philadelphia moved to Kansas City.

You omitted the first franchise switch in the second half of the 20th century, that being the Braves going to Milwaukee.

Thank you for that information. I have always pulled for the Sox, but have become obsessed the last couple of years. Carolina basketball and Red Sox baseball are my life. Thank You.

Thanks! Recently I'm been obsessed with the Red Sox, always wanting to learn more about their history. Just the other day I was looking for old pictures of Fenway Park and I learned a little bit of history there. This morning (between 12:00am and 5:00am) I read up on Roger Clemens, looked at pics of old players, and made a background, filled with pics of Red Sox legends, for my desktop ....

Now I understand where "Rooters" came from.

"Boston's Royal Rooters" by Peter J Nash is a great pictorial history of the Boston fan-base from its infancy through today. A must read for the Sox historian.

Just now received my book in the mail today.

Great stuff, though. As I was thumbing through the pages today, I noticed the pictures of Nuf-Ced and the Rooters at the 1903 World Series. It's amazing to think that one hundred and four years later, we're about to experience the same thrill and excitement as they did. And, our second title in four years, to boot! Is it great to be a Sox fan or what?

I've already purchased the "Rooters: Birth of the RSN" DVD for the old man's Christmas gift.

P.S. This site is mentioned in the fourth line from the bottom of the fourth paragraph on page 8. I'm sure most of you already knew that, however.

This video is from much later than the creation of the team, but I just found it on YouTube and had to share.

It is the entire game from 9/30/67, the 161st game of the season. I assume everyone here knows about the last couple of days of the 1967 regular season. If you have a 2 and a half hours to kill, this is a great way to do it. If you only want to skim through the game, I suggest making sure you watch from 2:01:21 for the next minute or so.

As for someone from the antipodes, an a bit inebriated , my belief was that nuf ced Mcreevey was the owner of the "third base saloon" and got fed up with the bickering going on and used to come across the bar with a bat saying " nuf ced", and have a couple of swings to quiet things down, I've been asked by mates down here why the "third base saloon" and the answer of "last stop before home" always brings a smile to faces.
