MLB sends ‘heads-up’ for Red Sox-Yankees rematch
Question of the Day
NEW YORK (AP) - Major League Baseball has sent a “heads-up” notice to the umpires working the series between the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees, reminding the crew that the teams had a dustup the last time they played.
The Red Sox visited Yankee Stadium on Thursday night in their first game since Boston’s Ryan Dempster hit Alex Rodriguez with a pitch on Aug. 18. That caused the teams to tussle at Fenway Park, and Dempster was suspended for five games.
Umpire crew chief Joe West says it’s been standard protocol for MLB for a decade or so to give advance notice to crews when clubs are meeting for the first time since having trouble. West said the umpires were recently sent an email advising them that there was a “heads-up” for this series.
