Starting with MLB’s Boston Red Sox, fans finally got their wish when they finally broke their curse for the first time in decades when they won the team's sixth World Championship in 2004 (and again in 2007). Still playing in the oldest standing baseball stadium in the country, Fenway Park, the Red Sox have grown to be one of Boston’s biggest draws.
