The Apology from Alex Rodriguez Yankees Fans Have Been Waiting For...

But does it matter? To some, probably not. To me, absolutely.

To the Fans,
I take full responsibility for the mistakes that led to my suspension for the 2014 season. I regret that my actions made the situation worse than it needed to be. To Major League Baseball, the Yankees, the Steinbrenner family, the Players Association and you, the fans, I can only say I’m sorry.
I accept the fact that many of you will not believe my apology or anything that I say at this point. I understand why and that’s on me. It was gracious of the Yankees to offer me the use of Yankee Stadium for this apology, but I decided that next time I am in Yankee Stadium, I should be in pinstripes doing my job.
I served the longest suspension in the history of the league for PED use. The Commissioner has said the matter is over. The Players Association has said the same. The Yankees have said the next step is to play baseball.
I’m ready to put this chapter behind me and play some ball.
This game has been my single biggest passion since I was a teenager. When I go to Spring Training, I will do everything I can to be the best player and teammate possible, earn a spot on the Yankees and help us win.


  1. This sounds about as sincere as when he claimed he didn't do it.

  2. A Rod HAD to do this. Had to. Now he can simply reference the letter when asked for the 100th time why he did this and did he do that. This can help him focus on hitting the damn ball and being sincere.

    1. I understand that. I'm just pointing out that it doesn't matter to me. I just want him to do what he's getting paid a s@#-ton of money to do.

    2. I think the haters and the fans can agree on that Mr. Van Dusen.


Sorry for the Capatcha... Blame the Russians :)
