A Massachusetts resident filed a lawsuit against the New York Yankees over injuries he received during a game at Yankee Stadium last year. During the August 29, 2007 game between the Bronx Bombers and Red Sox, Charles Hillios claims that two Yankees fans "harassed" him for cheering for the Red Sox. Though security warned the fans to stop bothering him, per the AP, Hillios says "the fans 'viciously attacked and physically assaulted' him when he went to a concession stand." We doubt this is the first--or last--instance of the Yankees-Red Sox rivalry turning vicious. In May, a Yankees fan drove over a Red Sox supporter outside a NH bar.
