Alex Rodriguez said he will play in the All-Star Game on Tuesday in San Francisco.
â€œIâ€™m going to play,â€? he said. â€œI think 3.9 million votes (from fans), you feel like you have a responsibility to go out there and play. Iâ€™m feeling pretty good.â€?
Rodriguez said his left hamstring was still not 100 percent, however.
The Yankees would prefer he not play but cannot mandate that. Joe Torre suggested that Rodriguez would likely only play three innings.
