Alex Rodriguez -- who made roughly $480 MILLION during his MLB career -- pulled out a wad of cash in Bev Hills Thursday to help out a kid who said he was raising money for football jerseys.
A-Rod was leaving Wally's Wine and Spirits when the kid walked right up to the baseball star and made his pitch.
So how much did Alex shell out?
We stopped the video and zoomed in ... looks like $6.
Hey, better than nothing.
