MLB's Alex Rodriguez Announces Plans to Retire After 2017 Season

Alex Rodriguez just announced he plans to retire at the end of the 2017 season, when his contract with the New York Yankees expires.

“I won’t play after next year,” the 40-year-old infielder for the Yankees told ESPN. “I’ve really enjoyed my time. For me, it is time for me to go home and be dad.”

Alex‘s 10-year, $275 million contract will end next year, and he will have made a total of $420 million over the course of his legendary, yet controversial career. Alex was suspended from playing in part of 2013 through 2014 after violating the MLB’s PED policy for using steroids.

Just this week, it was revealed that Alex is dating Anne Wojcicki, a Silicon Valley CEO.
