On Monday, the New York Yankees third baseman, Alex Rodriguez was suspended from playing the Major League Baseball throughout the year 2014. The 38-year-old athlete is appealing now the ban and until an appeals verdict is rendered, he still cannot play in the league.

Apparently, Alex Rodriguez, known as A-Rod and 12 other athletes were suspended from their allegedties to Biogenesis, a now-closed Florida clinic being accused of supplying performance enhancing drugs to athletes.

During the game, the crowd let him have it, just as Commissioner Bud Selig had earlier with a 211-game suspension. After the said  statement, the fans booed and held up derogatory signs as Rodriguez played for the first time since January hip surgery.

Now, Rodriguez was given until Thursday to file an appeal or just to step away, a possibly permanent, eventhough his record-setting contract runs through 2017.

In a press conference before the game, the baseball star told reporters “the last seven months have been a nightmare,” admitting this has been “probably the worst time of my life.” Alex  said he’s “fighting for [his] life” by appealing the 211-game ban, explaining, “I have to defend myself. If I don’t defend myself, no one else will.”
