Red Sox troll Aaron Judge by playing 'New York, New York' in victorious clubhouse

The Red Sox took notice when Yankees slugger Aaron Judge left Fenway Park while blaring Sinatra's "New York, New York," as he walked past the home clubhouse.

On Tuesday, they got their revenge.

Clubhouse cameras caught the Red Sox players singing along to the strains of Sinatra's ode to the city that never sleeps as they celebrated their 4-3 victory in Game 4 and berth in the American League Championship Series vs. the Astros.

Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia was the one who brought Judge's choice of music to the attention of manager Alex Cora, who knew it had resonated in the clubhouse.

"When Dustin brought it up, I said, 'Well, they know it happened,'" Cora told reporters. "I don't know if they took it personal, but it's just, I don't know, if we played 'Dirty Water' at Yankee Stadium, and they would have clinched in Fenway, they would have played 'Dirty Water' in their clubhouse."

Cora clearly harbors no hard feelings towards Judge.

"I don't know, man," he said. "He's a good kid. He's a good player, one of the best in the game. He's one of those guys that can become the face of baseball. From afar, I really enjoy watching him play, not when he's playing against us. So he's good for baseball. Nothing personal with him."
