Through MLB.com, New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez released a hand written apology to fans. Although it does not specifically state what A-Rod is apologizing for, he does admit that many would not believe the apology or anything else he had to say.
The New York Yankees had offered Rodriguez Yankee Stadium to give his apology, but in the letter stated that the next time he is at the stadium, it’s to do his job.
“I served the longest suspension in the history of the league for PED use”
Former Commissioner Bud Selig had suspended Rodriguez for 211 games but an arbitrator reduced that penalty down to the entire 2014 season. Rodriguez had admitted in court documents in the Biogenesis scandal that he had used performance enhancing drugs (PED’s). Anthony Bosch, was sentenced to four years in prison for conspiracy to distribute testosterone for his role at Biogenesis.
A-Rod is scheduled to report on February 25th for workouts beginning the 26th.
Below is the letter from Rodriguez:
