Police say thieves broke into baseball great Alex Rodriguez’s rented SUV this weekend in San Francisco and stole a reported $500,000 worth of jewelry and electronics.
The theft occurred between 9 p.m. and 11 p.m. local time on Sunday night near Oracle Park, where Rodriguez was calling the San Francisco Giants-Philadelphia Phillies game on ESPN.
According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the vehicle was rented by ESPN for “the broadcast crew,” so it’s unclear whether everything stolen belonged to A-Rod.
“I am saddened that several items that were of a personal nature and irreplaceable with sentimental value were taken,” Rodriguez told The Washington Post in a statement issued through ESPN. “I am encouraged that local law enforcement has security footage of the crime and are doing all they can to get the items back.”
Rodriguez, 44, retired after the 2016 season with 696 home runs and 2,086 RBIs in 22 seasons with the Seattle Mariners, Texas Rangers and New York Yankees. The three-time MVP and 14-time All-Star won the 2009 World Series with New York.
