WATCH LIVE >> New York Yankees vs Boston Red Sox Live Stream Free Online MLB 2018 Full HD
It was 12:14 in the morning on a school night. Like any cool high school freshman, I was sitting in my basement with my best friend, dressed in full Yankee uniforms, watching what was about to be the most exciting sports moment of our young lives.
Blinded by brawls, Pedro Martinez, and the “Boston Sucks” shirts our dads let us buy outside the stadium a few months back, nothing was more important than finishing this off.
Back from commercial and before the cameramen had a chance to get their bearings, the pitch was swung on, and Joe Buck was yelling into the night, “THAT MIGHT SEND THE YANKEES TO THE WORLD SERIES!” He was right. It seems silly considering 1996, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2009, and all the memorable moments of the 2017 postseason, but that home run by Aaron Boone stands head and shoulders above all other October moments. The rivalry was never as strong as it was that night and it was hard to imagine it ever would be again.
