There's no crying in baseball, but that doesn't mean Alex Rodriguez isn't upset. The New York Yankees third baseman was suspended from playing Major League Baseball through 2014. The 38-year-old athlete is appealing the ban, and until an appeals verdict is rendered, he's still eligible to play.
Defiant till the end, Alex Rodriguez is intent on evading baseball's most sweeping punishment. The baseball star is appealing a 50- game penalty the Major League dished out to him and 12 other players because of their relation to Biogenesis, a maker of performance-enhancing drugs.
Baseball stars Alex Rodriguez and Jhony Peralta are among 13 players who were penalized as a result Major League Baseball's six-month-plus investigation of Biogenesis of America, a Florida anti-aging clinic accused of distributing banned performance-enhancing drugs.
