Watch: Red Sox troll Yankees with celebration music
The Boston Red Sox trolled the New York Yankees with their choice of music after beating their rivals in the ALDS.
The Red Sox topped the Yankees 4-3 in Game 4 on Tuesday night, barely surviving a shaky 9th inning that saw the game end on a review.
Boston got to celebrate the series-clinching win on the field at Yankee Stadium, in front of all the fans, including the one who tossed a beer at Craig Kimbrel.
The celebration continued in the clubhouse where the Red Sox gathered and prepared to spray champagne. The music playing throughout the clubhouse was “New York, New York,” the song the Yankees play after home wins.

There’s more to it than that. After the Yankees won Game 2 of the ALDS to even the series, the song was playing as Aaron Judge exited Fenway Park.

Perhaps this was some revenge music for the Red Sox, who no doubt enjoyed celebrating on their rival’s home field for the second time this season.
