For the past 20 years, Alex Rodriguez has been a fixture in the MLB.
There has been a lot of ups.. there have been a lot of downs, and now it seems like the talented hitter plans to retire after his contract with the New York Yankees ends following the 2017 season, the designated hitter told ESPN on Wednesday.
Rodriguez enters 2016 with 687 career home runs, 3,070 hits and 2,055 RBIs. He's 76 away from becoming the all-time leader in home runs.
He missed the entire 2014 season after being suspended for the use of performance-enhancing drugs.
A-Rod was a young prodigy on the baseball field. His dynamic fielding and hitting made him one of the most sought after free agents in the history of baseball. His 10 year, 270 million dollar contract was the biggest ever and opened the doors in regards to the "value" of what a young superstar really is.
After a rough back end of his career, will A-Rod still make the Hall of Fame?
Yeah A-Rod def deserves to be a Hall of Famer
Apparently, that's not what he meant when he said it haha
