New York Yankees third basemen Alex Rodriguez may not be getting hits, but that hasn’t stopped him from hitting on women. During the Yankees game one loss of the ALCS to the Detroit Tigers, A-Rod was witnessed to be flirting with some ladies behind the dugout.
As the New York Post puts it:
Shameless Yankee slugger Alex Rodriguez was playing so poorly against the Detroit Tigers Saturday night that he was yanked from the lineup — but that didn’t stop him from trying to score.
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.
“I watched him flirt with two admittedly very cute young women nearby,’’ the witness said.
A-Rod, 37, had a ball boy toss the young women a baseball inscribed with a message asking for their numbers.
“Alex was holding a pen and wrote a note on a ball which was thrown at the women by a ball boy,’’ the witness explained.
“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.
Although the witness said the A-Rod did stop the flirting once captain Derek Jeter went down with a fractured ankle, this news will still surely upset the Yankee faithful and solidify A-Rod’s title of “douchiest player in baseball.”
