An upstart team challenges a veteran franchise
While the Tampa Bay Rays joined the American League in 1998 – almost a full century after the Boston Red Sox – it wasn't until 2000 that the animosity between the two really kicked off. Gerald Williams, feeling slighted by pitcher Pedro Martinez, charged the mound to confront the Red Sox player. Nowadays, it's unsurprising to see players from either team take to the field to join a physical fight. In 2008 tensions soared again as the Red Sox and the Rays met in the American League Championship series, with the Rays clinching their first pennant. The antagonism has ratcheted up to new levels in recent years, with some sportscasters saying the Tampa Bay Rays have superseded the New York Yankees as the Red Sox's most exciting opponent.
