Verycheapseats.com Reports: Red Sox, Yankee to Face Off Next Year
(EMAILWIRE.COM, October 30, 2012 ) Boston, MAThe rivalry that has been going on for many years continues to live on. Next year, on July 19, 2013, the Fernway Park in Boston, Massachusetts, will stand witness to the strong fight of Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees. The exact time of the sports event still has to be announced.
The Boston Red Sox is one of the most talked-about teams in the Major League. Based in Boston, Massachusetts, it is now owned by Fernway Sports Group, which also explains why Fernway Park is its official home during the season.
The Fernway Park was opened in 1912, around the same time that the Red Sox was officially recognized as a franchise in the league. It measures 37 feet, with high walls spanning more than 240 feet. One of the most interesting parts of the Fernway Park is the Green Monster. The venue has already hosted All-star Games, but even in the regular and practice seasons, it is almost always sold out.
The Boston Red Sox came out strong during the first few years. In fact, it won 4 championships before the end of the 1900s. However, it suffered a major blow for more than 80 years. This period was known as the Curse of Bambino, in reference to Babe Ruth, one of its popular baseball players. He was sold to its staunchest rival, the New York Yankees. The team was only able to break the very long loss period in 2004 when it won the World Championship, their sixth.
No one really knew when their rivalry started, only that they had come head to head too many times, including in 2004 when Red Sox eventually took home the title. They also met in 1999 as well as 2003, in which the Yankees beat the Red Sox. They also competed against each other in American League East and tied in 1978.
Nevertheless, within the 80-plus years, the Red Sox still continued to hog the headlines. It produced some of the well-known players in baseball history, such as Rickey Henderson, Herb Pennock, Babe Ruth, Cy Young, Orlando Cepeda, Jesse Burkett, George Jell, and Waite Hoyt. It also developed affiliations with the Minor League including the Pawtucket Red Sox, GCL Red Sox, Greenville Drive, Salem Red Sox, Portland Sea Dogs, and Lowell Spinners. David Ortiz garnered incredible 47 and 54 home runs during the 2005 and 2006 seasons, respectively. In 2008, the team and the venue, Fernway Park, recorded its 456 successive sold-out game, beating Cleveland Indians, which recorded 455 games. Red Sox is also one of the very few teams that can produce sold-out tickets in each game during a certain season.
