Just got back from Boston…while I was there I went to the Red Sox/Yankees game at Fenway on Sunday.
Here’s the question…I saw several people escorted out of our section by Fenway staff for apparently doing nothing more than cheering for the Yankees. Granted, this tended to cause reactions from Red Sox fans that were, well, a bit impolite to say the least. Were they actually removed from the park, or maybe just moved to another section?
As a Red Sox fan myself, I throughly enjoyed the “Yankees suck” chants and the rude retorts, but it does seem kind of harsh to throw Yankees fans out of Fenway for cheering for the Yankees. Part two of the question is does this happen with other teams, or is it due to the rivalry between the Sox and the Yankees?
