Alex Rodriguez made north of a half a billion during his 22-season major league career, but he says you can't put a price on some of the items stolen from the car he and a few ESPN employees were using in San Francisco for Sunday Night Baseball.
“I am saddened that several items that were of a personal nature and irreplaceable with sentimental value were taken," Rodriguez said. "I am encouraged that local law enforcement has security footage of the crime and are doing all they can to get the items back."
Evan Sernoffsky and Phil Matier of The San Francisco Chronicle reported Monday evening that while Rodriguez was out to dinner after broadcasting the San Francisco Giants-Philadelphia Phillies game Sunday, "a camera, a laptop, miscellaneous jewelry and a bag" worth nearly half a million in total were stolen from the car. TMZ Sports spoke with a representative for the three-time American League MVP and someone close to the situation that both said $500,000 is well north of the value of stuff that was stolen.
Now 44, Rodriguez is statistically one of the greatest players in the history of baseball, having hit 696 home runs and posted a 113.8 fWAR during his career, which saw him play for the Seattle Mariners, Texas Rangers and New York Yankees.
