A-Rod’s Lawyer Almost Fought Bosch’s Attorney

Yankees_Alex_Rodriguez_2013 [1]Alex Rodriguez decided last summer that he needed a street fighter in his corner to beat his 211-game doping suspension.

When he hired lawyer Joe Tacopina in August, he got one.

The high-profile defense attorney had to be physically restrained from brawling with another lawyer two weeks ago during his defense of Rodriguez when the steroid-stained slugger’s appeal kicked off in the normally sedate Park Avenue offices of Major League Baseball.

According to several sources with knowledge of the altercation, Tacopina instigated a confrontation with Julio Ayala, one of the Miami attorneys who represent Anthony Bosch, the proprietor of the now-defunct Biogenesis clinic that was a source of performance-enhancing drugs for more than a dozen big leaguers — and MLB’s chief witness.
