Alex Rodriguez was removed in the eighth inning during Game 1 of the ALCS on Saturday night, so why shouldn’t he flirt with some girls in the stands? After all, that was probably more successful than any of the plate appearances he’s had as of late.
The New York Post has details:
After being replaced in the bottom of the eighth inning in Game 1 of the American League Championship Series, the highest-paid Yankee openly flirted with a pair of pretty women two rows behind the dugout — even sending them a ball bearing a note asking for their phone numbers, a witness told The Post.
Instead of rooting on his teammates as they struggled to stay alive during the tense game at Yankee Stadium, A-Rod, 37, had a ball boy toss the young women a baseball inscribed with a message asking for their numbers.
The girls, to no surprise, complied with Rodriguez’s request for their phone numbers:
“The girls, who had already caught two balls, seemed bemused at first and tried to hand the ball to another fan, but other fans noticed the note on it and yelled at them to read it.
“The note asked them to write their phone numbers on the ball and throw it back,’’ the witness said.
“One of the girls, with darker blond hair, wrote . . . on the ball and threw it back at A-Rod, who gave her a big smile.”
“They exchanged a few glances after that,’’ as A-Rod took a powder while a pinch-hitter took his place at the plate.
I would imagine that Torrie Wilson, former WWE Diva and A-Rod’s reported girlfriend, wouldn’t be too happy about this.
