$500K of Goods Stolen from Alex Rodriguez's auto in San Francisco

A thief or thieves broke into Rodriguez's rental auto at some point after ESPN's broadcast of the game, sources told Evan Sernoffsky and Phil Matier of the San Francisco Chronicle.

The heist took place sometime between 9-11 p.m. when Rodriguez was still working the game.

"It's an unfortunate situation", an ESPN spokesman told The Washington Post.

The San Francisco Chronicle reported on Monday that the former Major League Baseball player left the items inside of a black Nissan sports utility vehicle. The vehicle was parked about three blocks from the venue.


Rodriguez told ESPN he was sad, because several of the items stolen were of "personal nature and irreplaceable with sentimental value". While Rodriguez and Matt Vasgersian called the Phillies-Giants game, the third member of their crew, Jessica Mendoza, was absent.

"I am encouraged that local law enforcement has security footage of the crime and are doing all they can to get the items back", Rodriguez said. Per the report, the estimated value of everything that was stolen was almost $500,000.

Rodriguez has declined to comment on what was stolen, and San Francisco police are not releasing details of their investigation into the auto break-in near Oracle Park.

The case is now a high priority investigation according to The Chronicle, and takes place during a time when auto break ins are an epidemic throughout San Francisco.
