Your beloved Yankees and the hated Red Sox have been battling for baseball dominance for over a century in one of the greatest rivalries in all of sports. For your Bronx Bombers, 1978 left yet another torturous mark on the Red Sox nation. Boston’s 14.5 game lead in July slowly started disappearing until it was only at four games, with a four-game series ready to start between the rivals at Fenway in early September. The Yankees dominated the series, swept Boston and left Fenway Park in first place in the AL East. In four days, the Yankees accounted for 42 runs and 67 hits while Boston scored only nine runs. That series forever became known as the Boston Massacre. The Red Sox did eventually tie the Yankees for first place at the end of the season, forcing a one game playoff at Fenway, but the hopes of a Red Sox comeback was crushed by a game-winning homerun by Bucky Dent. The Yankees reached the playoffs, shattered the dreams of the Red Sox and went onto win the 1978 World Series. Rub-in 1978 to your Red Sox foes by wearing this Rivalry tee by Nike. It features ’78 printed on the front with an embroidered “Since 1903” rivalry tag on the bottom and a story of that fateful season on the bottom left back. It will definitely bring back the horrors of that year for all Red Sox fan.
