Henry & Me: Hideki Matsui To Replace Alex Rodriguez

The upcoming movie "Henry & Me" is a child's movie based around the New York Yankees and it's players. The film is based on children's books of Yankees special assistant Ray Negron. For those too young to remember Negron was caught outside Yankee Stadium by George Steinbrenner spray painting a wall in 1970 and was made a bat boy. Negron has worked for the Yankees ever since in some capacity with the players.

Alex Rodriguez was one of those players said to have a big role in the upcoming film only to be cut out of most of it due to bad publicity fears and backlash after a second steroid allegation. Rodriguez will still be in the film but will be replaced in the majority of the film by former teammate Hideki Matsui.
