All About the Red Sox Founded in 1901, the Boston Red Sox, which used to be called the Boston Americans, were and still are one of the main subjects in Boston. With an average of around 35,000 people attending each game, this is no smalltalk. They won their first world series against the pirates in 1903.

Becoming famous didn’t happen overnight for Babe Ruth. It took him from the time he was born, to the time he hit 60 home runs, to become famous.

The study said that rate is going up an average of 9.1 percent per year” (Forbes.com, 2015). The answer can be traced back to the over-use in young arms.

Harper’s first full year without injury came last year where the 23 year-old played in 153 games. The league found out fast that if you give the emerging superstar a full year, you can take the “emerging” part out of the equation and just call him a superstar.
