Joe Girardi Upset With White Sox Fans For Cheering After Alex Rodriguez Hit By Pitch (VIDEO)

White Sox fans have been booing Alex Rodriguez throughout the first two games of a three-game series against the Yankees. But it was when they cheered for A-Rod that rubbed Yankees manager Joe Girardi the wrong way.

Following Chicago's 3-2 win on Tuesday night, Girardi voiced his displeasure with White Sox fans for cheering when A-Rod was hit in the elbow with a pitch from Chris Sale.

“There’s something wrong with that,” Girardi said, via CBS New York. “I often think that it starts from the adults. And if it was their child, would they want them to be hit? Because the kids will only repeat what the adults do.”

Rodriguez didn't seem to think much of the cheers.

"It was the weirdest thing," Rodriguez said, per the Associated Press. "Probably the first time in 2,000 at-bats. And walking up to the plate I said, `Whatever you do, just don't get hit in the elbow.' Second pitch I get hit in the elbow. I couldn't believe it. I love the fans in Chicago."
