Alex Rodriguez has been striking out at the plate so often, he thought he would try his luck with the ladies, while in the middle of the AL Championship Series. 

The man who loves to dig his hole bigger and bigger with fans just picked up and extra large shovel with this hook-up attempt at the ball park. 

The NY Post (h/t Busted Coverage) reports Alex Rodriguez began flirting with some lovely ladies after being benched for his propensity to swing and miss while in the batter's box. 

Seriously, if you see any baseballs just lying around today, Rodriguez is most likely near by not hitting them. 

After being replaced in the bottom of the eighth inning in Game 1 of the American League Championship Series, the highest-paid Yankee openly flirted with a pair of pretty women two rows behind the dugout—even sending them a ball bearing a note asking for their phone numbers, a witness told The Post.

As Busted Coverage reminds us, Rodriguez has been dating former WWE diva, Torrie Wilson. The website apparently tried to get in touch with her for a comment but to no avail. 

Here is what a witness told The NY Post

I watched him flirt with two, admittedly, very cute young women nearby. Alex was holding a pen and wrote a note on a ball...The girls, who had already caught two balls, seemed bemused at first and tried to hand the ball to another fan, but other fans noticed the note on it and yelled at them to read it.

The note asked them to write their phone numbers on the ball and throw it back. One of the girls, with darker blond hair, wrote . . . on the ball and threw it back at A-Rod, who gave her a big smile. They exchanged a few glances after that

Alex Rodriguez had to hit on something, because at 3-for-23 for the playoffs, he certainly isn't making much contact on the field. 

As for the anti-A-Rod, Derek Jeter, he broke his ankle in the 12th inning. At that time, per the report, Rodriguez remembered he was in the ALCS and not a late-night happy hour at the local pub. 

It's at that point that he stopped all the flirting. 

I guess you can say the man isn't used to riding the pine, and he just doesn't understand the decorum for team leaders. 

The good news is he should get plenty of practice with it from here on out. 

While it sounds like one of the ladies was pretty sweet on A-Rod, we consider this a hook-up failure. When the entire city is enraged at the love connection, we consider it a simple case of diminishing returns.
