Exhibition: Red Sox Host Yankees

February 23, 2019

Today in a game albeit an exhibition one that I prefer to the endless such battles on the Sunday night package, the world champion Red Sox host the New York Yankees.

136 days have passed since the Boston team held off the Yankees to take their division series three games to one.

The Red Sox went on to win their ninth title, as cited yesterday tied with the Athletics for third and one third the number of Yankees titles (27).

Tomorrow some thoughts on a “hockey anniversary.”

 

Nine Red Sox titles, an impressive 4 in this century and a (9-4) World Series mark.

The Yankees also with one better than victories in two thirds of their W.S. appearances, an incredible 27 titles with 13 losses in the Fall Classic.

 

So many greats on both teams over the years. Casey Stengel pictured above managed the Yankees from (1949-1960). Incredibly, in those 12 seasons, the Yankees won 10 American League pennants and 7 World Series, including a record 5 straight from (’49-’53).
