Red Sox History: January 1st
Well this day in Red Sox history proves to be an important one. On January 1st, 2005 the Boston Red Sox will enter into the new year as World Champions for the first time in over 86 years. Also in 1920 Babe Ruth wanted his $10,000 salary double to $20,000 by the Boston Red Sox. He said if they could do not it, he simply would leave Major League Baseball rather than play for another team.
