One of the fiercest rivalries is between the Yankees and Red Sox

Looking at the baseball rivalries over the years, there are just too many, but the one that tops the chart every time is between the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox.

The rivalry between the two teams has not just started but dates back to when the Red Sox traded Babe Ruth to the New York Yankees after the season in 1919. It was also the time when “Curse of the Bambino” started.

It was supposedly a bad omen put on the Red Sox for not winning the world series from 1918 to 2004. Well, 86 years is quite a long time. We can now say that it is one of the oldest rivalries in baseball that has stood the test of time and still stands strong.

This rivalry over the years has seen some extraordinary meetings, brawls between the players, and fandom fights.

The two legends coming together might be because of the game, but one will also think about the relationship between the two. Are they friends again? Are they still enemies?

Coming together to watch and talk about the fiercest rivals of baseball, Red Sox v/s Yankees, the two icons will probably be talking about other things as well. Jeter in his docuseries, ‘The Captain,’ said“There is no wedge. Everything’s good. I know people, to this day when I go places, it’s one of the first things they ask me about. There are no issues between Alex and I at all.” People might believe it if the legend says it. But they would still like to know if the once best friends are now friends again.
