New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez might have thought this week couldn't have got any worse following his lengthy suspension for his involvement in the sport's latest doping scandal. 

But the 38-year-old suffered further pain yesterday, after he was hit by a pitch during his side’s game against the Chicago White Sox - much to the delight of the opposing fans. 

Returning to the side for their series against the White Sox, the shamed Yankees star was subjected to continuous booing after he was suspended for 211 games after being found guilty of taking performance-enhancing drugs. 

After lodging an appeal against the ban, Rodriguez was allowed to take to the field until an official verdict is announced, with Chicago fans clearly unhappy at his part in the scandal. 

However, they were soon cheering at Rodriguez as he was hit in the arm by Chris Sale's pitch. He had forgetting to wear his elbow pad. 

Much to his credit, the disgraced third-baseman took it all in good nature, laughing it off as he made his way up the first-base line. 

The Yankees went on to lose the game 3-2.
