If it wasn’t bad enough that Alex Rodriguez has been benched in the playoffs, now, the Yankees slugger is involved in a scandal with a fan.
Earlier this week, the New York Post reported that A-Rod flirted with two women, during Game One of the ALCS. With New York losing to the Detroit Tigers, Rodriguez reportedly sent a ball to two blonde fans, asking for their phone numbers. According to ESPN, a team source has confirmed the story.
"It's true," the source said. "It was witnessed in the dugout. The whole thing is true."
The reported incident occurred in the eighth inning, after Joe Girardi pinch-hit for the third baseman. He was benched when the story came out, prior to Game Three. Girardi and Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said the move was based solely on Rodriguez’s performance on the field.
The New York Post was able to get photos of the women who piqued Rodriguez’s interest, and they have been identified. Australian bikini model Kyna Treacy and her friend Kate Quinn are the two fans in question.
According to her twitter account, Treacy is 27 years old and the co-owner of Designer Dress Me, which holds exclusive sale events where people can by clothes used in shoots and fashion shows.
Rodriguez reportedly asked for the girls’ numbers, despite having a girlfriend. He is currently dating former WWE diva Torrie Wilson.
Below are some pictures of Treacy.
