Alex Rodriguez has been one of the most talked about athletes, not only in the MLB, but sports in general. With an amazing first two-thirds of his career, he looked to be one of the greatest players in the history of the game. Since then, he’s been thrown in the middle of all the PED controversy and it looks like he’ll be serving a 100+ game suspension for his involvement in the Biogenesis Scandal. There may not be a Cooperstown in his future after all.
Anyway, all that being said, there are a few things you don’t know about A-Rod- even with as much as he’s in the media. Check out five things I dug up for you.
#1 – His favorite team growing up was the New York Mets.
#2 – He owns a Mercedes-Benz dealership in League City, TX.
#3 – He was recruited by the University of Miami to play quarterback for their football team.
#4 – He has two painted portraits of himself as a centaur in his home.
#5 – The University of Miami renamed their stadium “Alex Rodriguez Park at Mark Light Field” after A-Rod donated $3.9 million to have it renovated.
