New York Yankees designated hitter Alex Rodriguez pauses during a news conference, Sunday, Aug. 7, 2016, in New York, after announcing that Friday, Aug. 12, will be his last game as a player.
Alex Rodriguez had an estimated $500,000 worth of goods stolen from his rental vehicle Sunday night in San Francisco, reports The San Francisco Chronicle's Evan Sernoffsky and Phil Matier.
"It's an unfortunate situation", an ESPN spokesman told The Washington Post.
Rodriguez had been at the stadium almost the entire day. he and his ESPN crew called the Giants' 9-6 win over Philadelphia on "Sunday Night Baseball". "We're working with local authorities to address it". After the game, Rodriguez and other members of the ESPN crew went out to dinner nearby.
Rodriguez told ESPN he was sad, because several of the items stolen were of "personal nature and irreplaceable with sentimental value".
Rodriguez has declined to comment on what was stolen, and San Francisco police are not releasing details of their investigation into the auto break-in near Oracle Park. A person told NBC Bay Area that the items stolen included watches, jewelry, a laptop and a camera. The irony: During the Phillies' 9-6 loss to the Giants, Rodriguez criticized Phillies manager Gabe Kapler over his "careless managing". The TV moment happened days after he celebrated his fiancée J-Lo's 50th birthday at the Estefan's estate on Miami's Star Island.
