It may have taken until the last day of the regular season, but the New York Yankees clinched the American League East Division thanks to Baltimore's loss to Tampa Bay on Wednesday. Listen to the roar of the Yankee Stadium crowd as the official announcement is made.
The bursts of joy from the Yankees faithful was so loud that it startled veteran Alex Rodriguez, which made him promptly step out of the batters box and begin to investigate the cause of the uprising. He soon realizes what had happened and thn gives his nod of approval as only A-Rod could.
The All-Star third basemen was asked about the incident during the post-game celebration by which he responded, "Well, first of all I knew cheers like that weren't for me...that's for sure."
Rodriguez has been the subject of harsh criticism from the New York media and fans in the past, but it's nice to see him show a little a humor this time around. After all, his team did just wrap up the No. 1 seed in the American League playoffs.
