Alex Rodriguez denies that he was flirting with an Australian bikini model identified as Kyna Treacy during Game 1 of the American League Championship Series over the weekend, but a team source says the opposite.
Treacy and a female friend were sitting right behind the Yankees dugout on Saturday when A-Rod had a ball passed to her with a note asking for one of the fans' phone number, according to a report by the New York Post yesterday.

"Don't believe any of that (expletive)," A-Rod told ESPNNewYork.com.
But a source in the team told ESPN that A-Rod did have a ball sent to two female fans.
"It's true," the team source told ESPN. "It was witnessed in the dugout. The whole thing is true."
A-Rod, who was benched for the game, has received a lot of criticism for the flirting since it was a crucial game for the Yankees.
Treacy is a brunette bikini model from Australia, according to her Facebook account. She also owns her own bikini line called Kinibikini.
After she started to make headlines, she laughed about the buzz.
"Ha I am 27 not 33," Treacy wrote on her Twitter account @kinibikini on Wednesday, which hadn't been updated for four months.
The New York Post and other media outlets had reported she was 33.
A-Rod is 37. He has been romantically linked to Madonna, Kate Hudson and Cameron Diaz, among others.
In 2008 he divorced from wife Cynthia after his extramarital affairs. The Yankee's third baseman has two children from the marriage.
