The 1970's brought a huge revival to the great baseball rivalry between the Red Sox and the Yankees. Both teams were rising from the ashes of years of mediocrity and were buoyed by their young all star catchers, both American League Rookie of the Year award winners, New York's Thurman Munson (1970) and Boston's Carlton Fisk (1972). The spirit and fire of this rivalry seemed to be embodied in the competitiveness in these two determined backstops. Their grit and passion seemed to energize their teammates and fans. Many a game between these two teams were spiked with an edge that made it seem at any moment the dugouts would empty and there would be a full fledged free-for-all on the field. Here we see a moment in the Bronx. It looks like Fisk has just taken a pitch that was a little to close for his liking. Having said something to counterpart, Munson removes his mask and glares back, almost inviting him to come at him. In the background, we see Yankee manager, Billy Martin. Never a stranger to ball field fisticuffs, Martin seems to be enjoying the sight of these two warriors standing up to each other.
