Alex Rodriguez to retire, play final major league game on Friday
By Mark Townsend, Big League Stew
The end is near for Alex Rodriguez, even if he’s not ready to completely walk away from baseball. In aSunday morning press conference at Yankee Stadium, A-Rod and the Yankees jointly announced he will play one final game for New York on Friday, at home, against the Tampa Bay Rays. Following the game, Rodriguez will officially be released and will then immediately transition into a new role with the team as a special instructor and advisor. The news comes just days after Rodriguez stated that he’d be “at peace” if the Yankees decided to release him during the season.  Yahoo! News
