ARod Blatantly Hit with Fastball in Game Against Red

Boston pitcher Ryan Dempster hit New York Yankees Alex Rodriguez with a fastball in Sunday night’s game, setting off a chaotic scene at Fenway Park that lead to the ejection of Yankees manager Joe Girardi.From the moment Rodriguez stepped onto the field, the boos and jeers seemed to influence Dempster, who appeared to take aim at Rodriguez. Dempster’s first pitch came close to hitting Rodriguez, landing on the outside of his knee. A few pitches later, he threw a fastball that hit A-Rod’s elbow pad and deflected into his back.Rodriguez stared at Dempster as he was escorted to first base, but never attempted to rush the mound.Girardi, however sprinted onto the field and began yelling at plate umpire Brian O’Nora. Perhaps in disbelief that Dempster was not ejected for his blatant display, Girardi swung his fist wildly, nearly connecting with O’Nora’s chin.The benches and bullpens cleared, but the situation was handled before things escalated. read more

The firm had approached HIDCO and the helmet was given a trial for three months. Welcoming the move, Subrata Boral, a long-distance biker, said it will be a very effective solution for those who cover long distances on motorcycles, particularly in the sweltering summer heat. “If it cools the rider’s head in summer then it will be used on a large scale,” he said. The firm will give some helmets to HIDCO which will be distributed among bikers to get a proper feedback. Bikers said very few riders use proper helmets, which are essential for safe riding. They feel that more awareness is required about the utility of proper helmets.last_img read more
