Aaron Judge played 'New York, New York' on boombox while exiting Fenway to troll Red Sox

Aaron Judge might be an even better troll than power hitter.

While leaving Fenway Park Saturday following the Yankees’ 6-2 victory, the slugger played “New York, New York” on his boombox when walking past the Red Sox’ clubhouse.

Talk about making an exit.

Judge has pulverized the Red Sox through two games, going 5-for-9 with two home runs and three runs scored. He was otherworldly Saturday, blasting a first-inning home run off David Price and hitting three balls in play that reached or eclipsed 109 mph. To put that in perspective, Kris Bryant hit four balls in play at that velocity all season long, per Yahoo! Sports’ Jeff Passan.

With Giancarlo Stanton struggling to make contact in his first playoff series –– 2-for-10 with five strikeouts –– Judge’s performance has been tantamount for the Bombers. Heading into the series, the Yankees’ right-handed power hitting was billed as their big advantage over the Red Sox, and so far Judge and Gary Sanchez are living up to the hype. Sanchez went yard twice Saturday as well.

But as much noise as Judge has made on the diamond, he made even more in the bowels of Fenway.
