- Red Sox
The Boston Baseball Team launched a Spanish-language website last Tuesday, complete with video greetings from players David Ortiz and Adrian Gonzalez. Most major league teams, including Kansas City and Seattle, have had separate websites for Spanish-speaking fans for years. Now fans of “Los Medias Rojas” will get their own Web page. Team spokeswoman Susan Goodenow said the team has 300,000 Spanish-speaking fans on Facebook, so this move to court the Spanish-speaking market seemed like a logical next step. The new page will offer translations of feature stories and headlines from the main Red Sox website.
