One of the most important traditions in Yankee Stadium is the Bleacher Creatures. Arguably one of the most die-hard and loyal fan bases in all of baseball, the Bleacher Creatures make their presence known at every game in Section 203. The founding of this section is attributed to Ali Ramirez, who used to ring a cowbell to get the crowd going. He has unfortunately since passed away, but the tradition of the cowbell lives on through Creature Milton Ousland. Don’t be surprised to hear them yelling “Asshole!” to fans of the opposing team and other obscenities; this section is not for the faint of heart

8. Yankees - Red Sox Rivalry

Arguably, the most famous rivalry in all of sports, the rivalry between the Yankees and Red Sox dates back to 1919, when Red Sox owner Harry Freeze sold superstar Babe Ruth to the Yankees. The trade 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. Yankees-Red Sox games are some of the best games of the season, so make sure to get tickets when the Red Sox come to town.
