A-Rod in Tally to support the Hurricanes

TALLAHASSEE -- Alex Rodriguez, still suing Major League Baseball for engaging in what he called a "witch hunt" and appealing its 211-game suspension for what the league said was a violation of it's drug policy, was on the University of Miami sideline pre-game Saturday night to cheer on the Hurricanes.

Rodriguez has always been a huge Hurricanes fan and has followed their season closely. He was at the Georgia Tech game earlier this year. He plans on attending next week's game against Virginia Tech at Sun Life Stadium his spokesman said.

UM put Rodriguez's name on its baseball stadium back in 2009 after he provided a $3.9 million donation to help renovate Mark Light Field. It's now called Mark Light Field at Alex Rodriguez Park.

Here is a link to a photo I tweeted earlier tonight of Rodriguez with former Hurricane Yonder Alonso on UM's sideline.
