The Athol Police Department has taken the Boston Red Sox-New York Yankees rivalry to the next level.
“Effective immediately, no Yankees clothing may be work inside the Athol Police Station,” Police Chief Russell T. Kleber wrote in a memo to the department.
The Red Sox play the Yankees for the first time this season Tuesday at 7:10 p.m.
The memo goes on to say, “This directive will be strictly enforced. Go Sox!!!”
