Every Sunday, Boston Globe photographer Stan Grossfeld asks the subject of one of his photos to explain what’s happening in the shot:
Up today: Lucas Beder, 10, a Yankees fan, and Gary Smith, of Wellesley, who were both captured in this photo with Rodriguez last weekend:
Said Beder: “I just called A-Rod over and he just looked at two of his bats and he gave me a bat. He said, ‘Here’s a bat,’ and I said, ‘Thank you.’
“He’s not really (a cheater.) Haters can’t hate. It doesn’t matter (if he cheated). Who cares? Yeah, but who cares? I’m going to keep this in my room and make a stand for it. I like him. They’re awful (the fans) because they are booing him. If he’s doing steroids that’s bad for him.”
Said Smith, seated adjacent to Rodriguez’s nose in this shot: “I think he should be plunked every time he comes to bat. He’s a repeat cheater, everybody knows it.
