The New York Yankees are in Boston this week to take on the Red Sox in yet the latest installment of their storied rivalry. The circumstances were unique for one player in particular, as Jacoby Ellsbury made his first appearance back in Fenway Park after signing with the Yankees as a free agent this off-season.
While his departure was mostly amicable, the Red Sox probably still wished they were able to keep him around after they saw this play in the bottom of the first inning.
When he’s healthy, there’s no doubt that these are the dynamic plays that Ellsbury can bring. As far as the Red Sox are concerned, it will just now be on the other side of things.
