Is Yankee Stadium cursed by the Red Sox?

Published On October 12, 2012 | By Kimberly Petalas

The Boston Red Sox may not be in the playoffs, but they are still leaving their mark.

On April 13, 2008, construction workers at Yankee Stadium uncovered a David Ortiz jersey that was buried in concrete in the stadium a week earlier. A construction worker, who is also a Red Sox fan, had buried the jersey there in a supposed attempt to curse the New York Yankees.

This jersey was extracted over two years ago, and yet, the hole from the removal is still there. The Yankees bring in a lot of money, so it is a surprise to the fans that this hole has still not been filled.

Red Sox fans might see this as a good thing. Even though the jersey is no longer there, the hole is just a reminder of the fact that is was once there. And hey, what Red Sox fan wouldn’t want to make the slightest thing tilt against the Yankees?
