Time for the last Yankees-Red Sox Showdown in NYC -- October


September 27, 2012

By

Meryl Pearlstein, Travel and Food Notes

October usually signals the end of a mad-dash rivalry between the Red Sox and the Yankees. This year, it's anything but. Tickets are available for all 3 games, October 1-3, on StubHub for as low as $10 each with thousands left for sale. I guess that says it all. I'm still going. Being a BLOHARDS member means always having the faith. I'll say meekly, "Go Sox!"
