Today’s date is June 26, 2010 and now the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees find themselves in another heated race with each other for the AL East.

Once again, the most heated rivalry in baseball and maybe all of sports is getting better. In their history, these clubs have met over 2,000 times (2,072 to be exact), and each time they play each other everybody pays attention.
