Alex Rodriguez Career

Rodriguez began his professional career as one of the sport’s most highly touted prospects and is considered one of the greatest baseball players of all time. Rodriguez amassed a .295 batting average, 696 home runs, over 2,000 runs batted in (RBI), over 2,000 runs scored, and over 3,000 hits. He is a 14-time All-Star and won three American League (AL) Most Valuable Player (MVP) Awards, ten Silver Slugger Awards, and two Gold Glove Awards. Rodríguez is the career record holder for grand slams with 25. He signed two of the most lucrative sports contracts in history, but his career was highly controversial. He incurred criticism from the media for his use of performance-enhancing drugs.

The Mariners selected Rodriguez first overall in the 1993 MLB draft, and he debuted in the major leagues the following year at the age of 18. In 1996, he became the Mariners’ starting shortstop, won the major league batting championship, and finished second in voting for the AL MVP Award. His combination of power, speed, and defense made him a cornerstone of the franchise, but he left the team via free agency after the 2000 season to join the Rangers. The 10-year, $252 million contract he signed was the richest in baseball history. He played at a high level in his three years with Texas, highlighted by his first AL MVP Award win in 2003, but the team failed to make the playoffs during his tenure. Prior to the 2004 season, Rodriguez was traded to the Yankees, for whom he converted to a third baseman, because Derek Jeter was already the Yankees’ full-time shortstop. During Rodriguez’s career with the Yankees, he was named AL MVP in 2005 and 2007. After opting out of his contract following the 2007 season, Rodriguez signed a new 10-year, $275 million deal with the Yankees, extending his record for the sport’s most lucrative contract. He became the youngest player ever to hit 500 home runs, reaching the milestone in 2007. He was part of the Yankees’ 2009 World Series championship over the Philadelphia Phillies, which was the first year of the new Yankee Stadium and Rodriguez’s only world title. Toward the end of his career, Rodriguez was hampered by hip and knee injuries, which caused him to become exclusively a designated hitter. He played his final game in professional baseball on August 12, 2016.

During a 2007 interview with Katie Couric on 60 Minutes, Rodriguez denied using performance-enhancing drugs. In February 2009, Rodriguez admitted to using steroids, saying he used them from 2001 to 2003 when playing for Rangers due to “an enormous amount of pressure” to perform. While recovering from a hip injury in 2013, Rodriguez made headlines by feuding with team management over his rehabilitation and for having allegedly obtained performance-enhancing drugs as part of the Biogenesis baseball scandal. In August 2013, MLB suspended him 211 games for his involvement in the scandal, but he was allowed to play while appealing the punishment. Had the original suspension been upheld, it would have been the longest non-lifetime suspension in Major League Baseball history. After an arbitration hearing, the suspension was reduced to 162 games, which kept him off the field for the entire 2014 season.

After retiring as a player, Rodriguez became a media personality, serving as a broadcaster for Fox Sports 1, a cast member of Shark Tank and a member of the ABC News network. In January 2018, ESPN announced that Rodriguez would be joining the broadcast team of Sunday Night Baseball In January 2017, CNBC announced Rodriguez would be the host of the show Back In The Game, where he would help former athletes make a comeback in their personal lives; the first episode debuted on the network in March 2018.

Jennifer Lopez Arrives at 2019 Grammys With Alex Rodriguez in Bejeweled Wide-Brimmed Hat
February 10, 2019

After celebrating their second anniversary, Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez went for daring looks at the Grammy Awards.Jennifer Lopez arrived at the 2019 Grammys in a seriously showstopping look.

Lopez chose an opulent embellished high-neck Ralph & Russo gown — right off the runway! — with a matching wide-brimmed top hat covered in the stunning crystals. “I love it,” the star said during an interview during the CBS red carpet pre-show.

The star, 49, and boyfriend Alex Rodriguez, 43, snapped a sneak peek of her bold ensemble on social media before hitting the red carpet for the awards show, where the pop star will be performing.

She completed the look with a sparkling jeweled bracelet, a pastel clutch, sultry smoky eyeshadow, a glossy nude lip and an ultra-long ponytail (going all the way down to her waist!) by her go-to hairstylist Chris Appleton. “About to hit the red carpet… #Grammys,” Lopez teased on Instagram.

Rodriguez took the biggest night in music as an opportunity to experiment with a daring look as well.

After showing off a massive array of suit options on his Instagram Story, the former MLB pro ended up selecting a colorful hot pink and emerald tie dye pattern suit jacket paired with a crisp white button up.

“Bringing back the pink suit! … sort of. Who is more flashy tonight? Me or Jen?” Rodriguez wrote on Instagram.

Since Lopez and Rodriguez first began dating two years ago, the couple has become a style staple on every major red carpet. But Rodriguez admits he usually finds joy snapping photos of his lady’s fabulous looks.
“My job is to be the camera man!” Rodriguez said at the Grammys.
