Chicago Crowd Boos Alex Rodriguez

Following the announcement Monday that New York's Alex Rodriguez, along with 12 other players, would be suspended for alleged drug use, the Yankee was booed in his first at-bat during a game against Chicago.

The moment was captured by an Instagram user in the crowd:

Sports news site Deadspin also had a video of the crowd's displeasure with A-Rod. He hit a single and was booed a bit more when he got on base.

Rodriguez has said he plans on appealing the 211-game suspension.
