A-Rod on No. 500

I have a ton of work to do, but here are a few details on a big day for the Yankees:

Cynthia Rodriguez was not in her seat for No. 500 but saw her husband round the bases.

A Rutgers student, who asked not be identified, caught the ball. He was hustled away by security. When he spoke to the Yankees, he said he had not decided what he wanted to do with the ball.

Here’s hoping the guy gives the ball up for a few tickets and a signed bat or whatever. The whole process of people fighting over balls and selling them is unseemly.

Alex said he wanted the ball back and hoped something could be worked out.

Alex spoke to George, Hank and Hal Steinbrenner via conference call after the game and also spoke with Bud Selig.

His batting helmet has been donated to the Hall of Fame.

Here is the audio from Alex’s postgame press conference:
