Per ESPN, incidents such as this are fairly common, but most of them are never reported publicly. The Red Sox do regularly travel with extra security in certain cities, Tampa Bay being one of those, largely because of the number of transplanted Red Sox fans in the area, and the proximity of the team hotel to Tropicana Field.

I guess the Red Sox really are more important than every other team.

Also a lot of bad blood right now between the Red Sox and the Rays.
