AceShowbiz - The Boston Red Sox fans knew exactly how to bully Alex Rodriguez. During the postgame coverage of the Massachusetts baseball team vs. Houston Astros game, the MLB legend found himself being taunted with Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck's names.
"Hey, A-Rod, what's your favorite Ben Affleck movie?" one person screamed before making a reference to "Good Will Hunting". "A-Rod, Ben Affleck's got J. Lo, how do you like them apples?" However, the retired athlete managed to stay cool as he kept talking about the game.
Months prior, the Red Sox sent a "miss you" message to J.Lo in the wake of her split from A-Rod. In May, the team shared a video on its TikTok official account which included footage of the pop star at a Red Sox game in July 2019 with A-Rod while he broadcasted for "Sunday Night Baseball".
Another clip saw her hanging out with the team's mascot Wally the Green Monster. The dedication was added with a text that read, "To the girl on the Monster for Sunday Night Baseball in 2019. Come back soon. We miss you."
The Boston Red Sox has been a longtime rival of A-Rod's former team the New York Yankees. It is also the favorite franchise of Ben, who has rekindled his romance with the "Shotgun Wedding" actress.
A-Rod and J.Lo got engaged in early 2019. However, the former couple called it quits in April this year. "We have realized we are better as friends and look forward to remaining so," the exes said in a joint statement shared to the "Today" show. "We will continue to work together and support each other on our shared businesses and projects… We wish the best for each other and each other's children."
