    Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez is a changed man, and friends say Kate Hudson is to thank.

    Once a ladies man best known for his relationship with Madonna (with whom Rodriguez’s ex-wife famously – and embarrassingly – said in divorce documents he had once had an “affair of the heart”), the World Series champ is now settling in with Goldie Hawn’s daughter, and kicking his flirtatious ways to the curb.

    SLIDESHOW: Celebrities who date baseball players.

    “Alex hardly looks at other women,” an inside source told Fox411. “He used to love being a big flirt, he was very friendly and often met up with new girls. Alex is a changed man thanks to Kate. They are totally serious and he has given up some of his boys club habits.”

    Like hitting on cheerleaders.

    Recently, the Yankee and a few friends attended a New York Knicks game, where the new A-Rod carefully avoided the sexy Knicks City Dancers. “While the other guys were meeting the girls and talking, he barely looked at the women,” said an eyewitness. “He gave a polite smile and head nod to acknowledge them, and then he went back to talking about basketball.”

    SLIDESHOW: The lovely and talented Kate Hudson.

    “Kate has definitely made a huge impact on him and he loves being with her. When he isn’t with her, he’s thinking of her and he is so respectful that he doesn’t even want to talk to other women,” said the insider. “He has no desire to even hear rumors, so he has decided to drastically avoid most contact with women that could get him in trouble.”

    Once the center of more negative media than an entire teams generate (steroids, strippers, Madonna – you get he idea) the Yankee third baseman is now focused on flying under the tabloid radar.

    “Alex is a lot smarter than people give him credit for. He wants to be with Kate, take care of his family and play great baseball. All the other drama can go,” said the source. “He’s loving his life right now. He won the World Series and he has a fun girlfriend who believes in family as much as he does.”

    Alex has been spending the last week with his two daughters in Miami, where they live with their mother. And Yankees fans will be happy to hear that fresh off the World Series win, Alex is already back at the David Barton gym working out.

    “Alex keeps a second home down near the girls and he’s been spending some time with his girls. He has been working out a lot at the gym in the Gansevoort hotel – he’s staying loose and doing workouts a few days a week,” a source told Fox411. “This is his version of taking a break – quality family time and easy workouts. He and Kate will get back together in New York soon.”
