Yankees vs. Red Sox
The Yankees and Red Sox are two of the most iconic baseball teams in America. They have been rivals for over a century and their games are always highly anticipated. The two teams will face each other again on September 18th in what is sure to be an exciting game.
The New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox are two of the most iconic and storied franchises in all of baseball. The two teams have been bitter rivals for over a century, and the rivalry is often considered to be the most intense in all of sports.
The two teams first met on the baseball diamond in 1903, and the rivalry was immediate. The Yankees would go on to win 27 World Series titles, while the Red Sox would win just 9. However, the Red Sox would have their revenge in 2004, when they finally broke their “curse” and won their first World Series title in 86 years.
Today, the rivalry is as strong as ever. The two teams meet every year for a crucial series of games, and it is always must-see television. So when do the Yankees play Boston again? The answer is simple: April 10-12 at Fenway Park.
The Yankees–Red Sox rivalry is a Major League Baseball (MLB) rivalry between the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox. The two teams have competed in MLB’s American League (AL) for over 100 seasons and have since developed one of the fiercest rivalries in American sports.
The rivalry is often a lopsided one, with the Yankees winning 40 AL pennants and 27 World Series championships, compared to the Red Sox’s 14 pennants and 7 World Series titles; as of 2019, the Yankees own an all-time regular season winning percentage of .5677, while the Red Sox own .5362. Nevertheless, despite their comparative lack of success over much of the 20th century, the Red Sox dominated the series in early years, winning 8 pennants in 13 seasons from 1903–1918. This period included three trips to the World Series by Boston in which they faced their arch-rival New York Giants—thus acquiring the nickname “Miracle Braves” due to their improbable string of championships (a fourth trip to face Cincinnati Reds was canceled due to rain). Conversely, beginning in 1919, the Yankees had an extended period of success spanning over half a century in which they won 20 AL pennants and 15 World Series titles. In total, both teams have played each other 2,219 times—the most games between any two teams in Major League history—with 1,209 wins for New York and 1,010 for Boston as of June 11th, 2019. Due largely to their success throughout baseball’s early history as well as their geographical locations—both cities are located along I-95 on America’s East Coast—the rivalry has often been considered baseball’s premier interleague rivalry.
The New York Yankees are scheduled to play the Boston Red Sox again on September 18th at Fenway Park. The next time the two teams will face each other will be on September 20th, also at Fenway Park.
The New York Yankees are a professional baseball team based in the Bronx, New York City. They compete in Major League Baseball (MLB) as a member club of the American League (AL) East division. They are one of two major league clubs based in New York City, the other being the National League’s (NL) New York Mets. The Yankees began play in the 1901 season as the Baltimore Orioles (no relation to the present-day Baltimore Orioles). In 1903, Frank Farrell and Bill Devery purchased the franchise after it ceased operations and moved it to New York City, renaming the club the New York Highlanders. The Highlanders were officially renamed as the New York Yankees in 1913.
The team is owned by Yankee Global Enterprises, an LLC controlled by the family of the late George Steinbrenner, who purchased the team in 1973. Former catcher Yogi Berra and longtime broadcaster Phil Rizzuto are also honored with monuments in Yankee Stadium’s Monument Park. Monument Park is located behind Yankee Stadium’s center field wall and serves as a memorial to some of baseball’s greatest figures who have played for or managed the Yankees, including Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle, Whitey Ford, Yogi Berra, and Billy Martin.
The Yankees have won 27 World Series championships, 40 American League pennants (the most by any team in baseball history), and lead all MLB teams in wins (10,858). The franchise has garnered more division titles than any other team since 1994; however only 5 of those 21 post-season appearances resulted in World Series titles for them. The last championship series appearance and victory for them was against their arch-rivals – Boston Red Sox – during their most recent World Series victory in 2009; they also won against Houston Astros during their last appearance in 2017 American League Championship Series but lost to Los Angeles Dodgers during their 2018 World Series appearance.
Tickets for all home games went on sale February 13th, and Fenway Park is sure to be packed with diehard Red Sox and Yankees fans alike. If you’re hoping to catch a glimpse of the two teams facing off against each other, here’s when you can do so:
