The New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox, in addition to being great rivals, are also far and way the two most popular teams in Major League Baseball. And Johnny Damon has had the good fortune to play for both. Drafted by the Kansas City Royals, Johnny Damon came to the Red Sox in 2002 and instantly became a fan favorite in Boston. His long hair and beard earned him the nickname “Captain Caveman,” and his unique personality and all-out style of play earned him countless fans. As part of the 2004 Red Sox team that won the World Series, Johnny Damon will always have a special place in the hearts of Boston sports fans. But like Babe Ruth and Roger Clemens before him, Johnny Damon signed with the New York Yankees (and promptly lost his long hair and beard). Fans in the Bronx have embraced him just as eagerly as Boston fans did.
