Red Sox catcher Jason Varitek pushes the Yankees Alex Rodriguez after he was hit by a pitch. The shoving lead to the infamous Varitek - A Rod fight on the first base line in 2004. Varitek went to Lake Brantley High School in Altamonte Springs. He helped lead the Red Sox to their first World Series in 86 years along with several other Central Floridians on the squad including Johnny Damon (Dr. Phillips), Tim Wakefield (Eau Gallie) and Mark Bellhorn (Oviedo).
