Of course, there are those pesky steroid allegations (and the one admission) that will, more than likely, keep him out of the Hall of Fame…at least for a little while.
And you know what, he would agree.
“Everyone’s dream is to end up in the Hall of Fame,” Rodriguez said. “Obviously I have a unique situation and I don’t have a vote, unfortunately. But I think that with everything I’ve been through, I have an opportunity to be a Hall of Famer in other things – to be a Hall of Fame father, and give back to the sport, the baseball community, and do things the right way.”
While, I’m not sure there’s actually a place in Cooperstown for Hall of Fame fathers, A-Rod is right about being able to give back. Matter of fact, the three-time American League MVP is spending his first spring away from baseball serving as a guest instructor for the New York Yankees.
“I tell you what, I love the game, I love what I’m doing,’ Rodriguez added. “And the time I’m spending with the (Yankees’) kids, to me, is pretty awesome.”
