Alex Rodriguez was 1 for 6 with a homer and two walks in the extended spring intrasquad game in Tampa. He faced right-handers Matt Richardson and Jose Ramirez in the intrasquad, extended Spring Training game held at the Yankees’ Minor League complex.
He did not run the bases at remotely full speed according to observers. When he homered in the third inning, he jogged to first then headed back to the dugout.
Given the informal nature of the game, such things are allowed.
