The Spanish language media sometimes refers to the team as Medias Rojas for Red Stockings.

Where did the Boston Red Sox get there name?

For many decades, baseball team nicknames were pretty loosely used. The Cincinati professional team was unofficially called the Red Stockings because that is what they wore. Newspapers shortened the name to Red Sox in order to make smaller headlines. This nickname was coveted due to association with talent -- they were the "Yankees" of their day. But it was still an unofficial nickname. In 1907, National League teams were made to wear all-white uniforms, meaning neither their Boston nor their Cincy team could properly claim the name. The Boston owner took the name and had the good sense to trade-mark it. They've been the Red Sox ever since.
