Overview

This is the biggest and fiercest rivalry in Major League Baseball. In fact, it’s one of the most intense rivalries in sport. They first met way back in 1901 and since then they have played regularly in the American League. One of the main reasons for the bitterness between these two was an event in 1919. At the time, Babe Ruth was the star player for the Boston Red Sox. But he was sold to the New York Yankees by owner Harry Frazee. The Red Sox then went 86 years without winning the World Series, a run known as the “Curse of the Bambino”. The pair played in the AL Championship Series in 1999, 2003, and 2004. The Yankees won the first two, but Boston came from 3-0 down to win the 2004 series.
