This morning, Alex Rodriguez hosted a breakfast for 150 students who were participating in his annual basketball tournament in Miami. When asked about his upcoming surgery in January, Rodriguez said:
“I am fully committed to a very hard road back,” Rodriguez said. “We’ve done it before in ’09 and it was a great result, both on a personal level and on a team level, more importantly. I take it as a great challenge and I’m excited for the challenge.”
Rodriguez also told the attendees that his surgery was scheduled in mid-January. The recovery time could be anywhere from 4-6 months.
