"Beginning with the Red Sox's early glory days (when the Yankees were perennial losers), continuing through the Babe Ruth era and the notorious trade that made the Yankees champions (and marked the Sox with the so-called Curse of the Bambino); to Ted Williams vs. Joe DiMaggio; Thurman, Munson and Carlton Fisk; Roger Clemens and Pedro Martinez: down to last year's legendary playoff showdown, The Rivels, captures the drama of key eras, events, and personalities of both teams." "Their stories are illustrated with classic photographs and original articles from the archives, capturing the great moments as they happened. For Red Sox fans, Yankees fans, or anyone interested in remarkable baseball history, The Rivals is an up-close look at the longest and fiercest of all sports rivalries."--Jacket.
