Now 120 years old and counting, the Boston Red Sox are one of the oldest and most iconic teams in baseball. Even a casual fan can picture their iconic logos, a pair of red socks, and the Boston “B,” with zero difficulty.

But in a new partnership with Nike, Boston is throwing out tradition and embracing a whole new look. 

For the first time in history, the Boston Red Sox will be taking the field in blue and gold uniforms next week. The move is sure to irk some old fans. But the truth is that baseball needs to worry about more than their old fans. Baseball has a rich heritage. However, for it to have a bright future, the MLB needs to lure in new generations of fans like the NBA.

Read our story, and see the full uniform, here.

Ketchup and out: What you need to know​​​​​​
America is going through a great ketchup shortage right now. Why? Blame COVID-19, of course. 
Ever since the pandemic hit last year, people have been turning to curb-side pickups and food delivery services in record numbers. As a result, there has been a greater demand for ketchup packets instead of, say, the ketchup bottles that restaurants usually have sitting on tables.
That extra demand for packet-based ketchup has now led to a shortage, which has affected small restaurants and even some chains such as Long John Silver’s. 
Heinz, which dominates the ketchup market in America with a 70% share, says it plans to increase production by 25%.
