Now, it's an epic troll job.
The Pawtucket Red Sox, the Boston Red Sox's leading affiliate in the Juvenile League, has scheduled a special "celebration" to pay tribute to former New York Yankees hitter Alex Rodriguez and his fiancée. , Jennifer Lopez.
Get this. The PawSox are organizing an "engagement party" for J-Rod on April 12th.
The day will feature several events on the A-Rod theme.
Fans wearing Jason Varitek or Bronson Arroyo jerseys will enter the game for free.
You may remember that on July 24, 2004, Arroyo had drilled Rodriguez with a throw, which he then attacked with Varitek, triggering a fight that erased the benches.
Arroyo also had a problem with Rodriguez in the sixth match of the 2004 ALCS when the Yankees' third baseman hit the ball from the pitcher's glove. A-Rod was defeated by the referees for his actions as New York continued to fall free in the worst collapse of the playoffs in the history of the sport.
To top it off, Ben Affleck was invited to launch the first pitch. Of course, Affleck is a longtime supporter of the Boston Red Sox. He is also the old boyfriend of Lopez. The two men made several trips to Fenway Park during their time together, including the third ALCS match of 2003 between the Red Sox and the Yankees.
After dating J-Lo, Affleck finally married Jennifer Garner, who has also become a regular in Red Sox matches with Affleck.
Due to the history of Affleck's matches and the role played by J-Lo, the PawSox will let anyone named Jennifer attend the match on April 12 for free.
