Here I was thinking that Alex Rodriguez was the most hated man in baseball and had no fans left. Guess I was wrong.
Rodriguez returned to the Bronx on Friday for his first home game of the season. Though his reception from the fans was mixed during his first at-bat, I was shocked to see how many New York Yankees fans still supported the former slugger.
Many fans could be seen standing and applauding. Several held up A-Rod jerseys. More had posters where they expressed their support of Rodriguez.
Maybe most of the poster carriers are female fans who think A-Rod is cute, but hey, at least the man still has some fans.
Despite the appearance that Rodriguez was supported by fans on Friday, The Associated Press says he was booed consistently throughout the night. A-Rod went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts and was replaced in the ninth by Jayson Nix. Rodriguez did not speak with the media after the game, and he did not play on Saturday.
