A-Rod Playing for Trenton…in Reading…Tonight!
The minor league baseball stadiums of the greater-greater Philadelphia region has turned into a depressing showcase of elderly, injured New York Yankees. Last week it was 39-year-old Derek Jeter, who after a stint in Scranton, returned to the bigs and promptly re-injured himself. This week, please welcome 37-year-old Alex Rodriguez, who’ll play for the Trenton Thunder in Reading against the Phillies’ Double-A affiliate. Store these precious moments in your memory banks–A-Rod may not be in uniform again for a long time. After his rehab assignment concludes on July 22nd, he could face an 150-game suspension for his alleged role in the Biogenesis steroid scandal. [CBS 3]
