The Red Sox usually wear their red jerseys when they play afternoon games during the week. However, they wore them on a Sunday afternoon and the reason given by Jerry Remy was different. It had something to do with a last home game in a series. Can anyone add more? Usually worn on Sunday afternoon games, the last game of a homestand, or if the starting pitcher decides he needs to change his luck. Also worn on special occasions if need be (For example, the St. Patrick's Day green jerseys were worn the game following the death of the great Celtics coach Red Auerbach, as well as the day after the Celtics won Banner 17).
The Red Sox wore green shirts in observance of the death of Red Auerbach, former coach of the Boston Celtics. They wear green shirts on St. Patrick's Day. The Red Sox wore green shirts on June 20, 2008 at a home game against the Cardinals to celebrate the Boston Celtics' victory in the NBA playoffs. The Celtics were guests at the game.
The FIRST Red Sox with red socks were in 1908 when the team adopted the name Red Sox and took over the color red from the Boston Nationals.
On St. Patrick's Day .
no but they usually do. They are not REQUIRED to wear Red Sox, however, per MLB rules, ALL uniforms on a team must match. THerefore, one player cannot wear blue socks while the rest of the team wears red, etc.
The team is called Boston Red "Socks."
Up until 1908, the Red Sox were called the Boston Americans to differentiate them from the Boston Nationals. The Nationals decided to start the 1908 season with blue socks instead of their drab red socks. The Americans upon hearing of this, decided to change to a bright red sock (scandelous then!) and take up the name Red Sox.
RED SOCKS im a Boston gal yous guys!
from the Indians the red socks oh and hi
they were going to be called the Boston Red Stockings, but it didn't fit on the jersey properly, so they shortened it to Red Sox.

It's the Red Sox, and the park in Fenway Park.
At one time, socks were all called stockings. The 'Red Sox' team used to be called the 'Red Stockings' team. See http://www.baseball-reference.com/teams/BNA/
Many people enjoy wearing the color red. Some say redheads cannot wear red, but most recently at the SAG awards a famous redhead was touted for wearing red.
the first emblem of the Boston Red Sox was similar to the one they have now. it was two red socks with white heels and toes. there was no baseball saying "Boston Red Sox" in the back round
