Lightning rod (no pun intended) Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez had a controversy-free year and won back some Bronx Bombers fans.

Helen Fowler, however, was not swayed by Rodriguez’s strong season at the plate.  

The 85-year-old New Jersey grandmother recently passed away. According to her obituary, which appeared in the Star-Ledger, she was a lifelong Yankees fan, with one exception.
