ALEX RODRIGUEZ JOINS FOX SPORTS

Three-Time MVP Adds Game Analyst, Feature Reporter to Studio Analyst Duties in 2017

New York - Fresh off working as a guest studio analyst during FOX Sports' coverage of Major League Baseball's historic postseason run in 2016, World Series Champion and three-time American League Most Valuable Player, Alex Rodriguez, joins FOX Sports, as a full-time analyst. The announcement of Rodriguez's multi-year deal with the network was made today by John Entz, President of Production & Executive Producer, FOX Sports.

In addition to reprising his role as FOX MLB studio analyst, Rodriguez expands his broadcasting responsibilities to serve as a game analyst for select FOX MLB SATURDAY telecasts as well as feature reporter for FOX's MLB pregame coverage and FS1 studio show MLB WHIPAROUND.

"Bringing Alex back was a priority of ours and we are fortunate to have him as a key contributor to our baseball coverage," said Entz. "His potential is off the charts and he's been an incredibly quick learner in the world of television. He even understands the complexities of sales units. We are especially grateful to coordinating producer Bardia Shah-Rais, pregame producer Jonathan Kaplan, producer Royce Dickerson and all the FOX Sports staff who not only welcomed Alex but continue to strive to deliver the best pre and post game baseball shows on television."

"I'm excited to continue working with the FOX Sports family," said Rodriguez. "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."

Rodriguez made his broadcasting debut during the 2015 World Series as a guest studio analyst for FOX Sports, immediately earning praise as a first-time broadcaster. During the network's coverage of the 2016 MLB postseason, Rodriguez, along with analysts Pete Rose and Frank Thomas participated in a compelling and candid conversation in which they revealed some secrets to hitting in the big leagues.

A 14-time All-Star, Rodriguez owns a lifetime .295 batting average and has collected 3,115 hits (20th all-time), 696 homeruns (4th all-time), 2,086 RBI's (3rd all-time), and 25 grand slams (1st all-time) in 2,784 games played. He has made 12 different trips to the postseason and appeared in 76 playoff games, highlighted by 2009, when the New York Yankees beat the Philadelphia Phillies to claim the franchise's record 27th World Series title. Rodriguez played his final game as a New York Yankee in 2016, before taking a job with the team as a special advisor and instructor.
