You might say this team is now a curse on the other clubs in Major League Baseball. Boston Red Sox Baseball Club operates one of the oldest and most storied sports franchises. Founded as a charter member of the American League in 1901, the team owns eight World Series titles but at one time suffered through an 86-year championship drought popularly attributed to "The Curse of the Bambino." Boston broke The Curse in 2004 and then won its seventh championship three years later and its eighth in 2013. Red Sox fans root for their home team at venerable Fenway Park, the oldest pro baseball stadium in the country. Businessman John Henry leads a group that has owned the Red Sox franchise since 2002.
