05:16 AM ET 05.14 | Alex Rodriguez had a rough batting practice Friday. Standing near first base, Rodriguez was hit on the right hand by a ball off Jorge Posada's bat. Rodriguez shook his hand several times and it didn't seem to bother him in batting practice. Later, in between swings, Rodriguez was standing near the cage toward the first-base line when a ball clipped the front of the cage and hit Rodriguez in the head. Wearing a helmet, Rodriguez was stunned for a second but again wasn't affected in the batting practice round.

Haha... not news in the least, but fantastic. The more pain this narcissist endures the more I enjoy.

Good thing he's okay.

Fortunately the second ball hit him in the head, which minimzed potential damage

He should have had Evan Longoria standing next to him in batting practice.

That commercial was sooo fake. Maybe his teammates are sending him a message? Wake up A-Fraud, start hitting the ball. This is what one looks like since it looks like ur starting a lawnmower when u bat.
