Top 10 Moments Of The New York Yankees-Boston Red Sox Rivalry

6. Pedro Martinez Throws Don Zimmer To The Ground

This is perhaps one of the most infamous moments in the rivalry and a pure example of how the emotions of this hatred between teams can take over a player.

During a brawl in game-three of the 2003 American League Championship Series, things got a little feisty and those emotions got the best of hall-of-famer Pedro Martinez.

As players battled it out on the diamond, the 72-year-old Yankees bench coach Don Zimmer charged at Martinez but was shoved to the ground in one of the craziest fights in baseball history.

The Yankees ended up winning the contest, but this altercation is what people remember the most from this day.
