Red Sox Hosting Yankees At Fenway For First Time This Season
The Red Sox Friday night will host the Yankees at Fenway Park for the first time this season, an "almost unforgivable quirk of the schedule." Ahead of the three-game series, the BOSTON GLOBE's Christopher Gasper writes, "It seems fitting that in a baseball season strangely devoid of the usual buzz in these parts that the Yankees wouldn't arrive until July 19" (BOSTON GLOBE, 7/19). Red Sox 1B Mike Napoli said, "I haven't experienced that yet. I'm pretty sure the atmosphere is going to be (great)" (AP, 7/19).
