It has been a rough-go for Alex Rodriguez since beginning is minor league rehab assignment. He has one hit in five at-bats, but he did manage to reach base on Saturday after taking a pitch to the backside while playing for the New York Yankees’ Tampa affiliate. Check it out at the :55 second mark. Note the fans enjoying it, as it is the most cheers Alex heard all weekend in his direction: The pitcher who hit him is Cody Scarpetta, 24, a right-handed pitcher for the Brevard County Manatees. Now, Cody said he admired A-Rod and didn’t mean to hit him, he just lost control of the pitch, but after reading what his granny said, we aren’t too sure. She was quite proud of her grandson: From the NYDN: “I think he thinks he’s kind of a hotshot. I don’t care for his personality,” Meyers said of A-Rod. “He just thinks he’s better than the other boys.” Such a sweet old lady.
