Alex ‘A-Rod’ Rodriguez has been one of the finest ambassadors for the game of baseball. A-Rod is probably the only baseball player who has a global identity. And that also helped Major League Baseball to gain more popularity outside America.

Having played for over 20 years in MLB, there is not even a shadow of a doubt that A-Rod is one of the best to play baseball. Apart from his playing capabilities, there is another thing that stands out about the Yankees’ great. He is one of the very few sports personalities who has earned a maximum amount from their career earnings.
