The city of Boston has a rich sports history filled with championship glory and immortal athletes. When a city has so much history, it’s only logical that villains from different franchises will be formed. These are players who will forever be met with hatred and vitriol in the city because of their acts on the field, court, and ice.
Villains are not necessarily players who are hated for their dominant play against Boston sports teams. A true villain is despised for his dirty play and arrogance.
Luke Scott has been working his way up the villains list as of late. The Tampa Bay Rays designated hitter called the team’s historic ballpark a “dump” and referred to the fan base as “vulgar.”
Scott’s comments have made him a public enemy in Boston. His newly acquired status as a sports villain in the city of Boston brings up a major question. Who are the most hated villains in Boston sports history?
