I was really looking for 4. The Red (Stockings), the Red Sox, the White Sox, and the Tigers. Rumer has it that in 1901 Editor Philip Reid thought that the Detroit Wolverines' yellow and black socks resembled those worn by the Princeton University Tigers football team. Since this story can't be confirmed then I'll give credit to the first person who said the Reds, Red Sox and White Sox.
