Boston Runs Away With ‘Title Town’ Moniker With Eighth Championship Since 2001 (Chart)


The Boston Red Sox won the 2013 World Series on Wednesday night, adding yet another shiny trophy to the city’s already crowded trophy case.

That makes eight titles (in the four major sports) since 2001, with the Sox and Patriots capturing three each and the Celtics and Bruins bagging one apiece. This means the city has won 15.7 percent of titles contested in that period, according to our pal Tony Manfred over at Business Insider.

Check out his chart below for a clearer picture.

Aetna Strikeouts for A Cause

For every strikeout by a Red Sox pitcher at Fenway Park in June, Aetna will donate $250 to Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program. Through June 25, the donation mark stands at $30,000.

Through their continued efforts in the local community, Aetna is helping to build a healthier world -- one city and one strikeout at a time.
