Boston, MA – Baseball’s biggest rivalry has finally connected on some level with a singular goal. The President of the New York Yankees has made a donation to Red Sox Nation’s own, Senator Scott Brown.
New York Yankees President, Randy Levine, shelled out the maximum personal donation $2,500 to the Republican’s re-election campaign last month, the Boston Herald reported on Wednesday. Brown’s campaign spokesperson Colin Reed told the paper they were more than happy to take the donation from Levine.
Reed said to the Paper,
“We’re happy to accept Randy Levine’s donation. The way Scott Brown looks at it is, this is their way of paying us back for Babe Ruth.”
Last week Brown released a radio ad to talk about his sentimental attachment to Fenway Park, the famed home of the Red Sox is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year.
“Families throughout the years will never forget their first Fenway experience. I know I never will. Go Sox,”
He also debuted a web ad focused on Opening Day at Fenway, showing himself and his wife greeting people outside the stadium.
Brown says in the ad,
“The beginning of baseball, the beginning of the new season, it’s always a hopeful season. I listen to every single Red Sox game I can,”
Brown’s Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren made a crucial mistake when discussing the Red Sox. In December, she flubbed a trivia question about which two years the team had won the World Series. His last Democratic opponent, Martha Coakley, made an unforgivable error in 2010 when she said that the famed Curt Schilling, of bloodied ankle fame,was a New York Yankees fan.
On Friday, MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” will go live from Fenway Park with appearances from both Brown and Warren.
