The Yankees-Red Sox rivalry is one of the most famous and fiercest rivalries in all of sports. For more than a century, these two ballclubs have butted heads. In fact, the Sox went 86 years in between World Series titles (1918-2004), with some blaming the so-called "Curse of the Bambino" for the long championship drought.
While selling Babe Ruth to the Yankees may not have been their best move, the Sox certainly have become one of the winningest teams since breaking the curse, though it is the Yankees that hold the record for most titles, with 27.
On the weekend series of April 20-22, the Red Sox will celebrate the 100th anniversary of Fenway Park against the Yankees—the team they opened with. Recognizing this historic achievement, I present to you the 30 most intense moments in the history of this famed rivalry.
The moments are presented in chronological order. Enjoy.
