The Boston Red Sox capped off a historic 2018 season Sunday when they defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-1 in Game 5 of the World Series to clinch the franchise’s fourth title since 2004.
With the trophy in hand and the celebration about to begin, the Red Sox started singing a special song, but it wasn’t the one about the Charles River.
Once in the locker room, the Red Sox had to lob one final shot at their arch rivals, blasting Frank Sinatra’s “New York, New York” to get one final laugh at the expense of the New York Yankees.
As you might remember, Yankees star Aaron Judge played the famous song after New York’s Game 2 win in the American League Division Series at Fenway Park. The Red Sox got the last laugh, though, as they rolled over the Yankees in four games before dispatching the Houston Astros and Dodgers en route to a title.
