One could argue more than that Rodriguez and his team had a huge advantage considering that he is a former baseball player who is great with the New York Yankees.
But that didn’t stop JLo from giving it all and rushing down the baseline when she contacted the ball in a more than a minute long video posted on ARod’s Instagram.
In Daisy Dukes, a white top and a wide-brimmed hat, the entertainer, with three threats, hit a ball deep in the left field that appeared to be caught and hit a hard ball but was first thrown out.

In the clips below, Rodriguez showed his strength with the bat by hitting a hard liner to the left, and his teammate went deeper with a long fly ball that scored a run that seemed to be Lopez’s daughter Emme.
To give the video a soothing feeling, Billy Joel’s classic Piano Man was heard in the background during the game’s highlights.
