Alex Rodriguez’s Car Reportedly Robbed During Sunday Night Baseball


Philadelphia doesn't tend to give national announcers good reviews, but Alex Rodriguez got one on Sunday Night Baseball when he was critical of the Phillies decision to have Nick Pivetta continue to attack Kevin Pillar with a 3-1 count and first base open in the bottom of the eighth inning.

"It's an unfortunate situation", an ESPN spokesman told The Washington Post.

ESPN said it was working with local authorities.

Rodriguez left his auto three blocks from Oracle Park, according to the Chronicle.

"I am saddened that several items that were of a personal nature and irreplaceable with sentimental value were taken", Rodriguez said. Sometime between 9 PM and 11 PM, the vehicle was broken into, and a camera, a laptop, miscellaneous jewelry and a bag were all stolen according to the San Francisco Police Department.

The San Francisco Chronicle reported on Monday that the former Major League Baseball player left the items inside of a black Nissan sports utility vehicle. A thief stole a camera, a laptop, miscellaneous jewelry and a bag, with the missing loot estimated at roughly $500,000.

Rodriguez, 44, is in his second season as an analyst on "Sunday Night Baseball" after a 22-year MLB career that ended in 2016.

Rodriguez and Mendoza, of course, do color for ESPN's weekly game. The irony: During the Phillies' 9-6 loss to the Giants, Rodriguez criticized Phillies manager Gabe Kapler over his "careless managing".
