Best Answer

The Boston American League Baseball club was first known as the Somersets until 1905 when they became know as the Puritans for two years. After that they became the Red Sox and have been that ever since. In the 1960s they were still officially the Red Sox, but they were, and are, sometimes referred to as the BoSox, just as the Chicago White Sox are sometimes referred to as the ChiSox.
