We are not sure if he is or if there has been another more polarizing figure in the MLB than A-Rod. Born Alexander Emmanuel “Alex” Rodriguez on July 27, 1975. Alex has over 20 years playing in the league and is considered by many one of the greatest all time players. For his feats in the sport are many but unfortunately scandals have clouded his career special his later years. As as kid he professed his love for the New York Mets but is currently playing for the New York Yankees, this one being the third MLB team he has played for. Last Friday 19th was the day Rodriguez joined the 3000 hit club. A long history does the MLB poses but only 29 player had managed this feat since its birth. He now joins names such as Ty Cobb, Hank Aaron, Willie Mays, Pete Rose, Derek Jeter and other greats. Everybody, from fans to the gambling business has to recognize this amazing feat, but sadly A-Rod’s PED scandals throw nasty shadows on any of his recent accomplishments.
From Glory to the Shadows
Another club he is part of is the 500 home run club, with a current tally of 667 and counting. This group is an even more select one since it only has 26 members. Alex sits currently in 4th place of this list only behind legends such as Babe Ruth, Hank Aaron and Barry Bonds. Receiver of the MVP for the American League 3 times, 14 times All-Star, 2 Golden Glove awards and 10 Silver Slugger awards makes him a definite prospect for the Hall of Fame. Unfortunately his scandals regarding performance-enhancing drugs have tarnished what would have been a flawless career. Due to his involvement in the Biogenesis scandal he received a 211 game suspension. It was later reduce to 162 games but it still meant that he wasn’t able to play the whole 2014 season.
