Boston Red Sox players celebrate with the Commissioner's Trophy in the clubhouse after defeating the Los Angeles Dodgers in game five of the 2018 World Series at Dodger Stadium.


Red Sox-Yankees Rivalry On Display As Boston Celebrates World Championship

October 29, 2018 - 3:05 pm


It didn't take long for the Red Sox and their fans to take digs at the Yankees after Boston won the World Series on Sunday night.

Just as they did after eliminating the Yankees in their American League Division Series, the Red Sox celebrated by singing along to "New York, New York" in the visitors' clubhouse at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles.

The Frank Sinatra classic became a rallying cry for Boston after Yankees star Aaron Judge walked past the Red Sox's clubhouse at Fenway Park blasting the song from a boom box following the Bronx Bombers' Game 2 win.

Meanwhile Sunday night, jubilant Red Sox fans were chanting "Yankees suck!" in the Dodger Stadium concouse after Boston's 5-1 victory in Game 5.

Back in the Big Apple, however, the New York Post called scoreboard on the Red Sox and their fans, noting in a headline "Sox win 9th title, only 18 behind Yanks."
