The Boston Red Sox is the third most valuable franchise in the league, just behind their main rival, the New York Yankees, and the Los Angeles Dodgers. From 2014 to 2015, the Red Sox franchise value has increased significantly, going from 1.5 billion U.S. dollars to 2.1 billion U.S. dollars. The revenue of the Boston Red Sox has also consistently grown over the last few years. The Red Sox registered their highest revenue to date in 2014, with 370 million U.S. dollars.
