We may see Alex Rodriguez’s nephew in the bigs one day:
Joe Dunand Jr.’s nickname is Lil’ Joe, but you might as well call
him Lil’ A-Rod. Dunand Jr., a 13-year-old slugger, is A-Rod’s nephew.
He’s also a 5-9, 140-pound spitting image of the Bombers’ third
baseman. His father, Joe Dunand Sr., is Rodriguez’s half-brother.
“He looks more like his son than mine,” Dunand Sr. said
half-jokingly earlier this week as his son took batting practice at
Jose Martinez’s Baseball Made Simple Academy in the Bronx . . . Joe
Jr.’s resemblance to his uncle is so striking that he was selected to
play a younger version of A-Rod in a Dick’s Sporting Goods commercial
two years ago.
That sound you hear is Selena Roberts sprinting to her computer to add a new, salacious chapter to her book.
