Please, Alex Rodriguez, please tell us this isn't true. Because, if it is, you're officially the biggest jackass in New York sports history.
According to a new story in the New York Post, A-Rod might be playing like crap on the baseball field right now. But, off it, he's still got plenty of game. So much, in fact, that he couldn't wait for Game 1 of the American League Championship Series against the Detroit Tigers to end on Saturday night to try and score the phone numbers of two attractive young ladies sitting behind the New York Yankees dugout. So, after he was pulled in the eighth inning of the game, he reportedly made a move and sent the ladies a baseball with a note asking for both of their numbers.
"I watched him flirt with two admittedly very cute young women nearby," a witness told the Post. "Alex was holding a pen and wrote a note on a ball which was thrown at the women by a ball boy. 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. 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."
So, is this actually true? We're willing to give A-Rod the benefit of the doubt…for now. He's still involved with Torrie Wilson. [Ed. note: A-Rod really loves blondes, huh?! Just check out the thumbnails for a round-up of some of the girls he's dated in the past.] And, we don't think anyone is dumb enough to pull a stunt like this. But, for what it's worth, the Post did reach out to both A-Rod's rep and the Yankees and didn't get a response. We think A-Rod better put this fire out, like, now before New Yorkers start hating him more than they already do.
