Thu, 04 Aug 2011 05:41 PM EDT

The MLB is taking serious the allegations against their player Alex Rodriguez who had taken part in some illegal underground poker games which according to the report later turned violent which could result in him facing suspension if it is proven that he had participated in these games.

The MLB released a statement saying “We take this very seriously and have been investigating this matter since the initial allegation,” “As part of the investigation, the commissioner’s office will interview Mr. Rodriguez.”

According to an MLB executive to spoke on the condition of anonymity had indicated that Rodriguez could also miss games if the investigation proves that he was playing poker. Baseball scores

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.
