Alex Rodriguez was born in the Washington Heights section of New York City. When he was four, Rodriguez and his parents moved to their native Dominican Republic. After the family moved to Miami, Florida, three years later, Rodriguez's father announced his intention to move back north to New Jersey for a short time. He never returned, abandoning Rodriguez and his mother. His favorite baseball players when he was growing up were Keith Hernandez, Dale Murphy, and Cal Ripken. [1] The new facility will be named 'Mark Light Field at Alex Rodriguez Park.' Rodriguez remains an ardent University of Miami fan and can frequently be found at Hurricane sporting events, as well as working out at the school's athletic facilities in the off-season. He received the University of Miami's Edward T. Foote II Alumnus of Distinction Award in 2007. [1]

Injured Alex Rodriguez was not in the posted New York Yankees' lineup for Tuesday night's game against the Chicago White Sox. [6] Yankees December 13: Re-signed third baseman Alex Rodriguez to a 10-year contract. [6]

Alex Rodriguez was the first player picked in baseball's 1993 draft. In 1999, he was named one of People magazine's 50 Most Beautiful People, gaining instant recognition from women worldwide. He has played in three postseasons throughout his career, batting an impressive.340. [2] The 2001 season was very difficult for Alex Rodriguez. Rather than being asked about his personal achievements, A-Rod was constantly pelted with questions about his large contract. Despite all the distractions, A-Rod went out and had his finest season as a pro, hitting an astonishing 52 home runs and collecting a career high 135 RBIs. [2]

Behind his league-leading 54 homers and 156 RBIs, Alex Rodriguez won the American League MVP Award for the third time in his career and second time as a Yankee. [7] AROD.com is your home for authentic Alex Rodriguez apparel and memorabilia — including autographed jerseys and baseballs. [7]

Alex Rodriguez was born on Sunday, July 27, 1975, in New York, New York. Rodriguez was 18 years old when he broke into the big leagues on July 8, 1994, with the Seattle Mariners. His biographical data, year-by-year hitting stats, fielding stats, pitching stats (where applicable), career totals, uniform numbers, salary data and miscellaneous items-of-interest are presented by Baseball Almanac on this comprehensive Alex Rodriguez baseball stats page. [3]

Alex Rodriguez is adored by millions of female fans around the world. He is a heartthrob in Latin America, as well as in the United States. His attractive features have helped his status as one of the best-looking men in the sports world. According to a female panelist, A-Rod's green eyes give him another unique characteristic women are drawn to. [2] Everybody loves Derek Jeter (how could you not?!), but ever since Alex Rodriguez joined the team many fans have lamented the fact that the better shortstop of the two was relegated to third base. After yesterday's injury yesterday's injury to Jeet — he left the game after the second inning due to a strained quad — those fans might be getting a sneak peek getting a sneak peek at what the team might look like in MVP-Rod was indeed our starting shortstop. [8] No nothing, really. That might all change Tuesday when federal agents have a nice little chat with Jose. Federal authorities want to know the identity of a steroid distributor that Canseco said he introduced to Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez, according to a lawyer familiar with the matter. It will be of interest o see just what Canseco reveals. [8]

When Jose Canseco rush delivered his second juicy, gossipy, hey-everyone-look-I'm relevant-again steroid book, Alex Rodriguez was his biggest name implicated in some naughty PED business. Canseco didn't necessarily say he saw Rodriguez take anything, or that he himself injected Rodriguez — just that he referred A-Rod to a dude named Max who had the hookup. That's all we got: Max. (Probably not the dude's real first name.) [8]

Earlier this week, a sneak peek a sneak peek inside Jose Canseco's new book found his long-promised but extremely vague allegations about Alex Rodriguez and steroids. [8] Alex Rodriguez isn't talking about Jose Canseco's steroid allegations, but (surprise!) Hank Steinbrenner is. [8] Just to recap, Joba Chamberlain and Jose Reyes Jose Reyes are routinely taken to task in the papers for celebrating too much, and now Alex Rodriguez is being ripped for not celebrating enough. [8] Of course, the players at the top of the spectrum skew the numbers. Case in point: Alex Rodriguez is making $28 million this year, or roughly $6.2 million more than the entire Florida Marlins. "The Marlins? It's amazing," Rodriguez said. "And they still seem to find a way to be very competitive. They have a great pool of talent; they made some unbelievable trades, so they have great personnel people. [8] According to Jose Canseco, Alex Rodriguez once asked him point blank Alex Rodriguez once asked him point blank (page 192): "The 'roids: do they fk you up?" Canseco simply replied, "Do I look like I'm fked up?" My guess is that he was a) fully clothed when he said this; b) only talking about from the waist up; or c) all of the above. [8] The MLB FanHouse's collective mindset about the Jose Canseco Jose Canseco / Alex Rodriguez Alex Rodriguez BOMBSHELL is one of complete and utter awe, but we didn't know this until Lackey emailed the group yesterday and got this unsuspecting conversation on a roll. [8] We will remember two more balls that Manny Ramirez hit out of old Yankee Stadium, and we will remember the ball Kyle Farnsworth threw behind Manny's head in the top of the seventh. In his book "Vindicated," Jose Canseco says he introduced Alex Rodriguez to a steroid supplier called "Max." Sports Illustrated says it found "Max" - real name, Joseph Dion - and he says he never gave A-Rod 'roids. [5]

A-Rod, Beckett get night offInjured Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez missed his first game of the season, out for Tuesday night's matchup with. [5] Alex Rodriguez will rejoin the Yankees in time for tonight's game against the White Sox, but don't expect to see the reigning AL MVP in the lineup until Friday at the earliest. Yankee slugger Alex Rodriguez and his wife welcomed their new bouncing Bambina to the world today. [5] Cynthia Rodriguez, 34, gave birth in Miami to a girl, team officials said. The newborn daughter of Yankee slugger Alex Rodriguez left a Miami hospital Wednesday in her mother's loving arms. Alex Rodriguez's strained right quad muscle would have most certainly forced him from the lineup Tuesday night against the White Sox, but the birth of his second daughter in Miami on Monday night made it a moot point. [5]

Mets ace Johan Santana and Yankees star Alex Rodriguez, the city's two richest baseball players, could soon be neighbors in the same posh upper East Side building. [5]

The person Jose Canseco claims was a steroids dealer he introduced to Alex Rodriguez was a trainer named Joseph Dion, Sports Illustrated reported.
