Alex ‘A-Rod’ Rodriguez does not need an introduction. His journey from being an ordinary kid of Miami to probably the biggest star of baseball has been incredible and rarely heard off. Although A-Rod enjoyed an illustrious baseball career that lasted for over two decades, he also enjoys a successful post-retirement career.

One can hate him for his arrogance, attitude, or whatever other reasons, but he is one of the wisest minds in baseball. When he was playing baseball, he knew what job he had to do in the ballparks. And when the Yankees legend said goodbye to his baseball career, he made a significant investment in real estate.

While speaking with Grant, A-Rod also said it is normal in any business because every ball will not go for a home run.

“But it’s okay. You have to sell sometimes. You gotta get double. Not everything is going to be a home run. There is no need to be greedy. Take a single, take it off the table,” Alex ‘A-Rod’ Rodriguez added.
