In his final game in pinstripes. With his family in the stands. Alex Rodriguez went 1-4 with a double and RBI. Helping the New York Yankees to a 6-3 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays . Alex' double came in his first at bat. If tonight's game is his last in MLB. He will end up with 696 homeruns. Four more would have made him only the fourth player to hit at least 700. And would have joined Hank Aaron, Barry Bonds, and former Yankee great Babe Ruth. Alex Rodriguez will be released by the New York Yankees after the game. As they feel he does not give them the best chance to win. Although in the games he was in the starting lineup including tonight's game the Yankees record is 31-26. 28-30 when he is not in the starting lineup and or pinch hit. Rodriguez will become a special advisor and instructor for the Yankees in 2017. At his post game press conference he said "He's at peace". But Alex has said he still feels he can play. And with four more homers away from 700. The end may not be here yet.
