Dominican-American baseball player Alex 'A-Rod' Rodriguez was born on July 27, 1975, in Manhattan, New York. The New York Yankee is most known for a play he was involved on during game 6 of the 2004 ALCS. When A-Rod hit a slow ground ball back to the pitcher's mound where Red Sox pitcher Bronson Arroyo fielded the ball and tried to tag A-Rod, who girlishly slapped the ball out of Arroyo's hand and thought he had done nothing wrong. He was ruled out and his behavior and conduct are perceived as very un-professional and inspired much disdain from Red Sox fans and baseball fans alike.
