All Star Rodriquez Questioned For Illegal Gambling

August 4, 2011

New York Yankees All-Star, Alex Rodriguez, will be questioned after allegations by Major League baseball that he took part in illegal poker games.

An emailed statement from the office of baseball commissioner, Bud Selig said: “We take this matter very seriously,” in response to questions about the incident.

Rodriquez, 36 has always been considered a starlet of the sport becoming the American Leagues most valued player three times and sixth on the all time list of home runs with 626 but his gambling problems have always plagued the star.

According to 36 year old Rodriguez was spotted playing in two high stakes poker games as well as organizing and participating in a game in 2009.

Rodriguez’s representatives wouldn’t comment on the report along with Yankees spokesman Michael Margolis.

Rodriguez, if found guilty, will face the possibility of being suspended.

Currently the Yankees star is rehabilitating in Florida after knee surgery on July 11 and hasn’t played since July 7.
