With the toss of a baseball and the curiosity of millions, Kyna Treacy has become quite the big deal during the MLB playoffs. 

The biggest thing that could have happened to the lovely lady who was sitting in the stands for Game 1 of the ALCS was Alex Rodriguez being benched. 

Idle hands seem to yield to frantic hands that may or may not have asked for Treacy's number late in that game. 

While multiple reports issued that Rodriguez tossed some balls asking for a woman's number during Game 1, the New York Post was one of the first to crack the case and put a name to the mystery woman: 

Slumping slugger Alex Rodriguez zeroed in on fan Kyna Treacy, a leggy 33-year-old, in the ninth inning of his team’s crucial playoff game against the Detroit Tigers, openly flirting with her and getting her phone number even as he was yanked from the lineup and the Bombers struggled to stay alive.

With that, the Internets were off and running, gobbling up every last piece of information they could about this woman who is something of a bikini model and designer. 

Treacy will now enjoy life in the spotlight, at least for the time being. 

The New York Post, Fox News, The Daily Mail and others were covering her story, all because she caught the eye of a Yankees slugger. 

An Air Pacific commercial she featured in back in 2009 was even retrieved from the trash bin of old ads by the NY Post

Just a week ago, Treacy was an Australian bikini model whose biggest exploits were stints as a former Bondi Beach girl and former spokesmodel for Yellowglen Bubbly.

Today, she is a national story, someone Alex Rodriguez continues to field questions about. 

Fame was pretty much tossed in her lap.
