I just got an email from the Trenton Thunder which read:
New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez will participate in a rehabilitation assignment for the Trenton Thunder as they face the Reading Fightin Phils (Philadephia Phillies) on Friday, August 2 and Saturday, August 3 at 7:05pm at ARM & HAMMER Park in Trenton.
The Thunder expect a large crowd for the game and additional details regarding ballpark opening time and parking will be posted on trentonthunder.com soon.
Rodriguez has been sidelined all season due to offseason hip surgery followed by a strained quad.
Rodriguez is a 14 time All-Star (1996–1998, 2000–2008, 2010, 2011), 10 time Silver Slugger Award winner (1996, 1998–2003, 2005, 2007, 2008), five time American League home run champion (2001, 2002, 2003, 2005, 2007), two time AL RBI leader (2002, 2007), two time Gold Glove Award winner (2002, 2003) and the 1996 AL batting champion. He was a World Series champion with the Yankees in 2009. Last year with New York he hit .272 with 18 home runs and 57 RBIs in 122 games.
Really, what are the odds that this is going to happen?
