Giuliani, the former mayor of NY, is now leading Donald Trump's legal defense in special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.

Monday was not a great day for baseball in NY.

"The New York Yankees wish a very happy birthday to Mayor Giuliani", an announcer said during the game, prompting Yankees fans to boo the former New York City mayor.

Rudy Giuliani wasn't getting much love from New York Yankees fans on his birthday.

Mr. Giuliani recently joined President Trump's legal team amid the ongoing investigation into Russian election interference.

The former NY mayor has seen a dip in popularity since becoming Donald Trump's legal counsel.

He was reportedly booed at the Stadium in 2007 as well. He told CNN's Dana Bash on Sunday that the strategy behind Trump's aggressive attempts to discredit that investigation is to curry favor with the "public opinion".

Whether the Monday crowd at Yankee saw Giuliani's crash assessment, many were not pleased by his attendance on Monday at the ballpark.

The Yankees lost to the Astros, 5-1.

"Thunderous boos rained across the stadium", one commenter posted on Twitter.
