NEW YORK (AP) - The wife of Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez wore a white tank top with foul language on the back when she attended a game against the Oakland Athletics.
A common two-word obscenity ending with ``you'' was clearly visible when Cynthia Rodriguez, her 2-year-old daughter and an unidentified older woman took their seats Sunday in the players' family section at Yankee Stadium.
A front-page photograph Monday in the New York Post shows the back of the tank top with the obscenity printed in Old English lettering between the shoulder blades. The first letter of the first word is visible; the three other letters are intentionally blurred. The second word is 'You.' The paper's headline read: ``F-Rod.''
The Yankees had no immediate comment, team spokesman Jason Zillo said Monday.
According to the Post, the team's policy prohibits banners or signs that are not in ``good taste'' and also warns that security guards will eject any guests ``using foul language'' or ``making obscene gestures.'' Zillo would not address whether the message on the shirt violated the policy.
In late May, A-Rod's marriage was front-page news when the Post published a photograph of him and a woman - later reported to be a Las Vegas stripper - at a Toronto hotel. The Post said the pair entered an elevator in the hotel and later went to a strip club.
