3. Manual Scoreboard

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.
