NEW YORK -- The boos were louder for Alex Rodriguez after his first at-bat than before it.
Appearing at Yankee Stadium for the first time since he appealed his 211-game suspension from Major League Baseball for violating its drug policy, Rodriguez heard a mixture of cheers and boos when he batted for the first time in the bottom of the first inning on Friday night against the Detroit Tigers. A good number of fans stood and cheered for him.
With a man on second and two outs, Rodriguez struck out swinging against Rick Porcello to end the inning. He then heard resounding boos.
