Rivalries & Top Games to Attend
Red Sox vs Yankees
Rival Team: New York Yankees
Arguably, the most famous rivalry in all of sports, the rivalry between the Red Sox and Yankees dates back to 1919, when Red Sox owner Harry Freeze sold superstar Babe Ruth to the Yankees. The traded sparked the rivalry as Ruth went on to lead the Yankees to four World Series. From 1919 to 2003 the Yankees won 26 World Series to the Red Sox none, however, in 2004 the Red Sox captured their first World Series in 86 years after erasing a three game to none deficit in the ALCS. Red Sox-Yankees games are some of the best games of the season, so make sure to get tickets when the Yankees come to town.
Red Sox vs Orioles
Rival Team: Baltimore Orioles
The Red Sox and Orioles have a fierce rivalry. The two AL East rivals have been battling it out since the inception of the American League, and things have been even tenser between the two since the Orioles moved to Baltimore in 1954. Red Sox and Orioles fans hate each other, and you’ll be in for a good time when these two AL East rivals face off on the diamond.
Red Sox vs Blue Jays
Rival Team: Toronto Blue Jays
The Red Sox and Blue Jays have been battling it out for AL East supremacy since the Blue Jays joined the league in 1977. The Blue Jays have managed to be quite a thorn in the Red Sox side over the years, and you’ll be in for a good matchup when attending a Red Sox-Blue Jays game.
Red Sox vs Rays
Rival Team: Tampa Bay Rays
The Rays may be the newest team in the AL East, but that doesn’t mean the Red Sox and Rays don’t have major beef. The two teams met in the 2008 ALCS where the Rays punched their ticket to their first ever World Series, and a few years later, in 2011, the Rays upended the favorite Red Sox for the Wild Card spot. There is plenty of bad blood between the Red Sox and Rays, so don’t miss it when Tampa Bay comes to town.
