Alex Rodriguez has possessions stolen from rental auto in San Francisco

Alex Rodriguez has possessions stolen from rental auto in San Francisco

The vehicle, which was rented by ESPN for some of the production crew covering the Phillies-Giants game on Sunday Night Baseball, was broken into while the group was having dinner after the game.

A thief or thieves broke into Rodriguez's rental auto at some point after ESPN's broadcast of the game, sources told Evan Sernoffsky and Phil Matier of the San Francisco Chronicle.

"It's an unfortunate situation". "We're working with local authorities to address it".

In a statement, Alex added, "I am saddened that several items that were of a personal nature and irreplaceable with sentimental value were taken". A camera, laptop, bag, and miscellaneous jewelry were taken from the vehicle.


Rodriguez is in his second year with ESPN. The 14-time all-star helped the New York Yankees win the World Series in 2009.

Police are reportedly investigating the incident in order to find the crooks who busted into the sports star's rental. The irony: During the Phillies' 9-6 loss to the Giants, Rodriguez criticized Phillies manager Gabe Kapler over his "careless managing".

The unfortunate circumstances come a week after Rodriguez received a positive response from the crowd at Yankee Stadium when he broadcast a Sunday night game between the Yankees and Red Sox on August 4. ESPN said Mendoza was not seriously injured and was recovering with her family and was expected back in the booth soon.
