Sport: Baseball
Year: 2004

The rivalry between the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees has been and will always be an intense one. Arguably, the greatest moment in BoSox history was when Boston defeated the Yanks in the 2004 American League Championship Series after being down three games to zero.

A black eye on the historic night, however, was when a Red Sox fan named Victoria Snelgrove was unintentionally struck by a supposedly “non-lethal” round from a crowd-control gun after the ensuing celebration was deemed too out of control. The projectile that hit Snelgrove fractured the bone near her eye and caused excessive bleeding. Because of the crowd, she could not receive medical attention for her injury, she died 12 hours later in a Boston area hospital. No charges filed against the police officer who shot Victoria.
