Alex Rodriguez Confused After Didi Gregorius Doesn’t Give Him Helmet
Alex Rodriguez has an infatuation with batting helmets after walk off home runs. It's really strange and very A-Rod like, but it's been going on for around seven years now. Instead of being euphoric in celebration when the Yankees would win in dramatic fashion, A-Rod would go nuts trying to acquire the batting helmet of the player that would win the game for the Yanks. Pinstripe Alley did a wonderful job covering this phenomenon, compiling a list of gifs showing many examples of A-Rod's obsession.
After last night's stunning walk-off Yankee win, Alex Rodriguez waited in his customary spot along the third base line as Didi Gregorius ran around the bases. Except, Gregorius threw his helmet directly into the ground. A-Rod was extremely confused about what to do. He didn't join his teammates celebrating at home plate and instead went looking for the departed helmet. Unfortunately for Rodriguez, the bat boy went and did his job properly and went to find the helmet, leading A-Rod to be outside his team's celebration, awkwardly clapping alone.
Like we said it's standard Alex Rodriguez.
