Autograph stirs up rivalry

The New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox have one of the most storied rivalries in all of sport.

The passion and loyalty exhibited by fans on both sides is unflinching. It appears a 10-year-old Red Sox fan is at the center of the latest maelstrom.

The Yankee player had a reply on Monday.

You'd like to think a professional baseball player would have an ounce of class, especially when dealing with a young fan.

I'm not sure I understand why a Red Sox fan, even a young one, would want an autograph from a Yankee player though? I can't imagine any 10-year-old LSU fan going up to Nick Saban at the SEC Media Days and asking for an autograph.
