He said “We’re talking to people involved in the investigation and we’re taking this very seriously,” “Because he had been warned about this before, I would say a possible suspension would be very much in play.”
These allegations were first reported by the Star Magazine which talk about the third baseman for the New York Yankees playing at least two games one of which took place at a home of a record executive in Beverly Hills. Here as it was reported cocaine was used openly and there was also a fight which nearly broke out when the players had refused to pay after they lost over half a million dollars. According to the story which was reported by other players at the game Rodriguez had “tried to distance himself from the game,” once there was violence. Basketball scores
The whistle blower said “He just shook his head, not knowing what the hell happened,” “He didn’t want to deal with it at all. He was like, ‘OK, whatever. It’s your game.’ I would estimate A-Rod lost, like, a few thousand dollars that night. After everything that happened, he paid up and left.”
Back in 2005 Rodriguez had been strictly warned about gambling in what is known as underground poker clubs but the star of the Yankees and the baseball commissioner Bud Selig both of whom are now concerned about the possible involvement with the gamblers who may have been betting on baseball games which could result in the lifetime ban of Pete rose from playing baseball. This is something that the investigation will now try to determine in due time.
