Yankees evoke Taylor Swift, dance with Drake after Royals sweep – UnlistedNews

The New York Yankees completed a much-needed three-game sweep of the Kansas City Royals on Sunday, and some of their key players appeared to be getting assistance from two of music’s biggest stars.

Devoted Taylor Swift fan Anthony Rizzo played a huge role in the Yankees’ 8-5 win after changing his intro song to “…Ready For It?” of Swift. The 33-year-old first baseman snapped a recent slump and went 4 for 4 with a home run and two RBIs.

“It’s his summer, really,” Rizzo said. “She’s helping the economy in every city she goes to.”

Rizzo was referring to Swift’s “Eras Tour” concert series, which she attended during her New York tour, and bought “a lot” of merchandise, according to teammate Aaron Judge. Rizzo has been a huge fan of Swift for years and also used her songs as walk music during her days with the Chicago Cubs.

Meanwhile, Judge and fellow Yankee Giancarlo Stanton were also enjoying their proximity to a top-tier pop star on Sunday. After the game, Judge and Stanton joined Drake on his own tour of Madison Square Garden. Concertgoers caught video of Drake descending on stage with the two Yankees hitters behind him.

The Yankees are currently 53-47 and are two games away from the final AL wild card spot going into play on Monday. With New York’s offense having struggled big in the absence of the AL MVP judge in 2022 as he rehabbs from a foot injury suffered in early June, it makes sense that some of the Yankees’ highest-profile hitters would look to two of music’s biggest hitmakers for inspiration.
