Yankees Fans Doing The Unthinkable In The Name Of Aaron Judge

It was a sight nobody ever thought they'd see in their lifetime.. Or anybody's lifetime. 

No, not Roger Maris's record of 61 home runs being broken (Aaron Judge is still two away from doing that). 

But Yankees fans cheering "Let's go Red Sox"?? According to Boston Red Sox manager Alex Cora, he heard it a number of times in the top of the 9th at Yankee Stadium Saturday, as fans were hoping for the BoSox to tie it so Judge could get another at-bat in the bottom of the 9th.

“Actually, it was kind of weird the last inning,” Red Sox manager Alex Cora said. “There was a section towards right field that they started chanting ‘Let’s go Red Sox.’ And it was a bunch of Yankees fans. They were wearing their jerseys.” One fan told him (not that it had to be said) that it was the first time he'd ever said 'Let's go Red Sox'.

Judge, of course, is still stuck on 60 HR (as if that's actually a problem), and is one short of tying former Yankee Roger Maris for the American League record for a single season. Fans are clamoring to see it live.

“There was a guy right next to me (near the dugout) saying, ‘Let’s go, Alex. Let’s score two,’” Cora said. “I told him, I said, ‘If you get this place going, chanting Red Sox, you’re the man.’ But he didn’t. You know, but it was interesting.”

Cora's boys couldn't make it happen, however, and the Yankees won 7-5, negating the need for the bottom of the 9th, and robbing Judge of one extra chance at history.

He'll get likely four more chances again Sunday night, as the Yankees host the Sox one more time. On Sunday Night Baseball for all the nation to see.
