Alex Rodriguez is already on to the next chapter of his career since retiring from Major League Baseball last year. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the former Yankees star officially closed a multi-year deal with Fox Sports and will now serve as a full-time analyst.
A Rod isn’t necessarily a rookie to the world of broadcasting, considering he covered the 2015 World Series before returning to the network for the 2016 postseason. “I’m excited to continue working with the Fox Sports family,” he said. “It’ll be great to get back on set with the guys for the regular season and postseason, especially the All-Star Game in my hometown of Miami.”
The three-time AL MVP is slated to provide commentary for Fox MLB Saturday telecasts, MLB Whiparound and pre-games. “Bringing Alex back was a priority of ours and we are fortunate to have him as a key contributor to our baseball coverage,” said Fox Sports president of production and executive producer John Entz on Tuesday (Mar. 7). “His potential is off the charts and he’s been an incredibly quick learner in the world of television.”
