Red Sox vs. Dodgers History
Surprisingly, two of the most venerable and popular teams in Major League Baseball have very limited history together. The lone World Series matchup between the Boston Red Sox and the Los Angeles Dodgers came more than a century ago, in 1916.
In that series, a lefty pitcher named George Herman Ruth – aka Babe – pitched all 14 innings in a game two victory at Boston’s Braves Field to help the Sox in an eventual 4-1 series win. Two years later, Ruth was sold to the New York Yankees. At that point, the Dodgers weren’t even known as the Dodgers, going by a number of different nicknames (most prevalently the “Robins” after their manager Wilbert Robinson.
Since that series, the teams have played just 15 times, with the Red Sox holding an 8-7 advantage since interleague play begin back in 1997. They did not play each other at all this season.
Boston was the winningest team in baseball this season, cruising to 108 victories and the American League East crown. They defeated the New York Yankees 3-1 in the Division Series and then knocked out defending World Series champ Houston 4-1 in the ALCS. Tuesday will begin the team’s first World Series since 2013, when the franchise captured its eighth title and third since breaking the so-called “Curse of the Bambino” in 2004.
Los Angeles is in the World Series for the second consecutive season, having fallen to Houston in seven games a year ago. They captured the team’s sixth straight NL West crown with a 92-win campaign in the regular season. They defeated the Atlanta Braves 3-1 in the Division Series, then holding off the Milwaukee Brewers in seven games to advance to the World Series.
Red Sox vs. Dodgers Tickets
Fenway Park is one of the smallest (and the oldest) venues still in use today, having been built in 1912. (The 1916 World Series was played at Braves Field because it had a larger capacity). Dodger Stadium is one of the largest stadiums in the majors, and is the third oldest, having opened in the early 1960s.
Both teams were hot in the ticketing market this year. Boston Red Sox tickets were No. 1 according to marketplace data in both overall sales in MLB and by average ticket price. Los Angeles Dodgers tickets were No. 6 by total sales, and No. 5 in average ticket price. We would expect that World Series tickets between these two franchises will be going fast.
