    ... days to Opening Day!


    Yankee catcher Yogi Berra, who thought he put the tag on Dodger Jackie Robinson when the latter stole home in the eighth inning of the opening series game, loudly voices his view on the matter to umpire Summers. Supporting Yogi's claim are Yankee first baseman Jorge Posada (20), skipper Casey Stengel, pitcher Whitey Ford (16) and second baseman Billy Martin. Yanks took the opener, 6-5.

    Thurm lets it be known that there are ONLY...



    ... days to Opening Day!

    On Aug. 1, 1973, the rivalry heated up in a big way when the two All-Stars fought after a collision at home plate. It was a wild free-for-all with Thurman getting the decision in terms of punches landed. Gene "Stick" Michael got the worst of it actually. With the two teams tied for first place, tensions were ready to explode by the time the ninth inning rolled around. With one out, Thurman was at third, Felipe Alou at first, Gene Michael batting, and John Curtis was pitching. Thurman broke for the plate on a suicide squeeze. Michael tried to bunt, and missed, then tried to step in Fisk's way. Bad move! Fisk roughed him out of the way and braced for Munson, who crashed into him as hard as he could. Munson tried to lie on top of him while Fisk held onto the ball so as to allow Alou to keep rounding the bases.

    Fisk kicked Munson off him, and swiped at him with his fist. Michael grabbed Fisk, Curtis grabbed Munson --Fisk threw Michael down with his left arm and fell to the ground. In the meantime, Thurman was like a maniac, throwing as many punches as possible to Fisk's face and body. In the clubhouse afterward, the exalted Munson snipped at the press, "Go ask him who won the fight, he knows," confident that he won the decision.

    Munson (chuckling) : Jorge, nice looking helmet. That thing has more pine tar on it than George Brett's bat ... and I heard Billy's waiting for the right time to call him on it too.

    Posada : Yeah, "The Boss" told me this morning that I have to get it cleaned. I'm bummed .

    Munson : Sorry man, I know the feeling, I had to shave my beard.

    Posada : He said he doesn't want me to wear it in a game.

    Munson : Well as "the Captain" I take that to mean you can wear it every single day for the next...

    Action from September 8, 1978, the second game of the "Boston Massacre"
    The
    Yankees entered the series in Fenway a full 4 games back after gaining ground from 14 1/2 games behind in the middle of July. The Bombers went on to score 42 runs on 67 hits in a four game sweep of the Red Sox and left tied for first place.
