Three days later, David Ortiz also stuck up for Rodriguez, telling USA TODAY Sports that he disapproved of Dempster throwing at Rodriguez.
I didn’t like it. I don’t think it was the right thing to do,” Ortiz told USA TODAY Sports on Wednesday. “But we don’t all think alike, and the guy who did it — Dempster — is a great guy.”
Rodriguez has come under intense scrutiny for his involvement in the Biogenesis case and his appeal of a 211-game suspension from Major League Baseball.
