Hailing from the oldest MLB stadium in history, the Boston Red Sox have seen many talented players come and go over the years.
The Red Sox have won nine World Series total, putting them in a tie for third place with Oakland Athletics for most World Series wins. The Red Sox were established in 1901 and have seen many of their players become All-Stars, Hall-of-Famers and overall leaders.
Past and current players alike have carried the Red Sox toward many victories and successes, and there are certain players who have truly made themselves known as legends over the years. These three players may have been forgotten about as former players for the Red Sox, but they have certainly made their mark as legends in MLB.
3. Babe Ruth started his career with the Red Sox
Though Ruth was mostly known for his time with the Yankees, he formerly played for the rival team, Red Sox, from 1914 to 1919. Ruth was a pivotal part of the World Series wins in 1916 and 1918, offering strong athleticism and talent as a pitcher and hitter.
Though Ruth only spent one more season with the Red Sox before going to the Yankees, he made his initial legacy on the Red Sox. He later retired after 22 years and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1936.
