Before They Were Stars: Alex Rodriguez at Spring Training in 1995

Even if you’re not a baseball fan, chances are that you’ve heard of Alex Rodriguez and his minor little scandal with performance-enhancing drugs which could lead to a lengthy suspension for hm pretty soon. So I think it’s only appropriate that we travel back to 1995 when A-Rod was a skinny, humble 19-year old with only 32 Major League games under his belt when he reported to spring training for the Seattle Mariners and had to compete for a spot on the team. The funniest part of this segment is A-Rod stating that if he wins the starting shortstop job with the team, he’ll “probably save them a little salary”. Yeah, these days, A-Rod’s salary is more than the GDP of some countries!
