$500K in property stolen from A-Rod's vehicle

13 August 2019

The baseball legend was working the Philadelphia Phillies - San Francisco Giants game when his rental auto was broken into just a few blocks away from where he was working at Oracle Park Sunday.

Alex Rodriguez had some downright bad luck Sunday night. "We're working with local authorities to address it", an ESPN spokesperson said.

Rodriguez, an ESPN analyst, was in San Francisco for the network's Sunday Night Baseball game between the Giants and Phillies.

At the time of the incident in San Francisco, Rodriguez was at a postgame dinner with other members of ESPN's crew, a person familiar with the situation told The Post.

Rodriguez told ESPN he was sad, because several of the items stolen were of "personal nature and irreplaceable with sentimental value".

When he finally returned to his vehicle, he discovered that it had been broken into - and an estimated $500,000 worth of items was missing, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

"I am encouraged that local law enforcement has security footage of the crime and are doing all they can to get the items back", Rodriguez said.

Per the report, someone allegedly broke into his vehicle between 9 p.m. and 11 p.m. that night - at least five hours after the first pitch had been thrown.

The robber made off with Alex Rodriguez's camera, laptop, jewelry and a bag, according to the report. The irony: During the Phillies' 9-6 loss to the Giants, Rodriguez criticized Phillies manager Gabe Kapler over his "careless managing".
