WooSox fragen sich, was mit Ruby Legs Fauxbacks passiert sein könnte – SportsLogos.Net News

When the former Pawtucket Red Sox from Rhode Island moved to their current home in Worcester, Massachusetts, one of the names the team considered adopting was Worcester Ruby Legs. The nickname is loosely associated with a short-lived National League team called the Worcester Worcesters, which played from 1880 to 1882.


The Triple-A Worcester Red Sox, or WooSox, will pay tribute to this team and ponder what could have been if they were playing as Ruby Legs next week. The team introduced the old-fashioned alternate branding last season for the first time and will be bringing back the look this season.


While the nickname WooSox was the clear favorite throughout the team naming competition before the franchise’s debut in 2021, Ruby Legs garnered some attention. Although Ruby Legs was never officially the nickname of the 19th century Worcesters, there are anecdotal evidence linking it to the team.


The alternate uniform reflects the 19th-century baseball style, complete with a pillbox hat and a design intended to mimic a collar and bow tie.

The Ruby Legs will take the field next on June 9.
