Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez spent time in the dugout with Alex Rodriguez and girlfriend Jennifer Lopez during CC Sabathia’s charity softball game on Thursday at Yankee Stadium.
NEW YORK — Talk about a Murderers’ Row.
Judge, A-Rod and J.Lo chatted in the home dugout for a while.
They were there in support of the PitCChedIn Foundation, which raised approximately $1 million with the game. Sabathia’s charity serves inner city youth.
Yankees legends Mariano Rivera and Jorge Posada also appeared. So, too, did Johnny Damon, Giants running back Saquon Barkley and Yankees players Giancarlo Stanton, Brett Gardner and Greg Bird.
The event also honored 15-year-old Lesandro “Junior” Guzman-Feliz, a Bronx native who was killed in a gang attack last week.
Rodriguez didn’t play in the game but was shown with Lopez on the big screen at the stadium. The 42-year-old will be on the broadcast team when the Yankees and Red Sox appear on ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball. Rodriguez is also currently serving as a special advisor to Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner.
Judge is hitting .277 with 20 homers, 52 RBI and a .950 OPS in 282 at-bats and figures to be a shoo-in for his second straight All-Star Game. Last year, Judge make it as a rookie. He finished runner up in the American League MVP vote and captured the Rookie of the Year title.
Rodriguez and Lopez have been dating for more than a year.
Rodriguez played 22 years in the majors, including 12 with the Yankees, winning a World Series with them in 2009.
