The Yankees and the Red Sox play their first game ever on this date in 1903 — but they weren’t called the Yankees and Red Sox yet!

The American League team from Boston, known wrongly to posterity as the “Pilgrims,” downs the Highlanders at the Huntington Ave. Grounds by a score of 6-2. Why does that matter? It is the first game between the franchises that will eventually become the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox. And so the fiercest rivalry in sports began.
