Back in his playing days, Alex Rodriguez was known for smashing a lot of homers while using illegal substances.
Which is why it sure seems like old times today, as we report some more illegal smashing tied to A-Rod—only this time it’s his car window.
This after a thief broke into the baseball legend’s rental vehicle Sunday night in San Francisco, making off with an estimated half-million dollars worth of jewelry and electronics.
Rodriguez was in town broadcasting the Giants-Phillies game for ESPN and he left his car on the 400 block of Brannan Street, about three blocks from Oracle Park, sources said.
Make a note of that next time you’re looking for Bay Area parking.
SFPD reports that sometime between 9 p.m. and 11 p.m., someone broke into the vehicle and stole a camera, a laptop, miscellaneous jewelry and a bag.
Source say that ESPN had rented a black Nissan sport utility vehicle for Rodriguez and other members of the production staff. The thieves struck while Rodriguez and the other staff members were having dinner after the broadcast.
At least they didn’t ruin his meal.
