Finally! Alex Rodriguez is making headlines for something GOOD!!
Just last weekend, A-Rod made his way to the Dominican Republic to lend a helping hand at the sixth annual David Ortiz Celebrity Golf Classic!
Alex was on the auctioning block as one lucky fan got a chance to big on a lunch date with the beleaguered baseballer, and all of the controversy he's facing didn't stop one person from dropping $13,000 on a chance to hang with him!
Dayum! That better be one BIG lunch!
In total, the charity event raised a whopping $350,000 for the David Ortiz Children's Fund as well as the World Pediatric Project and Massachusetts General Hospital for Children!
Wowzers! Well done A-Rod!

You know that little place on your voting ballot where you can write in the name of a person who you want to win?
Well, the people of Boston have spoken!
Despite the fact that Marty Walsh and John Connolly were the only two people officially running for the Mayor of Boston on the ballot, enough people out of the 560 write-ins scribbled down Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz’ name to spark reports that he came in third, according to NBC Sports!
We’re kind of innerested to know just how many of those ballots listed the World Series winner as “Big Papi!” Ha!
However, it seems that

Despite all of the horror and tragedy the city of Boston has endured this week, its people have continued to show their incredible resolve, unity and perseverance throughout it all!
Friday's terrifying, extended manhunt for marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev ultimately forced the Red Sox's game against the Kansas City Royals to be postponed until last night, when both teams banded together with the spectators to collectively pay tribute to all of the brave first responders who risked their lives to help the victims, as well as all those affected by the senseless acts of violence.
What no one was expecting, however, was Neil Diamond to hop an impromptu flight from El Lay to Boston with the specific intention of appearing at the game to perform his classic Sweet Caroline, which Boston fans are known to belt out during the seventh inning stretch!
And right before the eighth inning, that's exactly what the iconic singer did!
Ch-ch-check it out for yourself (above)!

Jay-Z is taking the Yankees vs. Red Sox rivalry to a new venue!
Jay-Z is reportedly suing Red Sox powerhouse slugger David Ortiz, claiming that a nightclub opened by Ortiz in his native Dominican Republic was named after Jay's 40/40 club concept.
Basically, Big Papi opened a club called club Forty-Forty, a reference to 40 home runs and 40 stolen bases, which BTW is NOT a record he holds. Anyway, Jay is saying that Ortiz named his club that to scrub off the popularity of Jay's chain of 40/40 clubs, which can be found around the world.
Jay has filed a $5 million suit which not only states that the baseball star knew about the clubs, but that he had also been in them. The suit says:
"David Ortiz is fully aware of Plaintiff's Manhattan 40/40 club, since he had been a patron there on several occasions before he opened his infringing Forty/Forty club."
Oops! Forgot about that did you, Big Papi? Tsk, tsk!
Yankees win this round!
