The Greatest Rivalry in Sports
Red Sox vs. Yankees
The Start of a Rivalry
It all started in 1903 with the first World Seires. The Boston Red Sox, who started
in 1901, defeated the Pittsburg Pirates 5 games to 3. Cy Young, the winningest
pitcher of all time, lead the way for the Champion Boston Red Sox team. The Red
Sox went on to win 5 of the first 15 World Seires, including in 1918. In 1919, the
GM for the Boston Red Sox, Harry Frezze, traded Babe Ruth and about 10 other
players away, all for money in return. He used this money to build an "all Red Sox"
theatre in the heart of New York City. Today, this is concidered one of the biggest
flops in sports history. The second Ruth put on his new Yankee hat, the history of
babseball would change forever. Ruth, along with Lou Gehrig, would build the
foundation for the Yankee team which had a poor record since their start in 1903.
