At the Podium

Alex Rodriguez has had one of the most impressive sports careers of all time—but his hard-earned success did not come without challenges. In a moderated discussion that pulls no punches, Mr. Rodriguez takes audiences through his journey—the rise, fall, and continuous path of resilience and hard work which has helped him to rebuild his role as a team leader and asset to his sport and community. Beyond his retirement from playing as a Yankee, he will continue to be a crucial part of the organization as a senior adviser to Hal Steinbrenner of the New York Yankees. Mr. Rodriguez shares anecdotes about the triumphs and troubles that come with balancing sports and celebrity, and he discusses how nothing is more instrumental to success than being a true student of your craft. He also shares his “mindset of a champion” philosophy, and how it applies to success both on and off the field.

Alex comes to work with more tools in the box than anybody in the game.

- Reggie Jackson

About Alex Rodriguez

Alex Rodriguez is widely regarded as one of the greatest baseball players of all time, with a 20 year career that includes 14 All-Star appearances and three American League MVP Awards and a World Championship in 2009 with the New York Yankees. Mr. Rodriguez has also begun to use his extensive knowledge of baseball off the field as a color commentator for FOX Sports.  He received critical praise for his commentating throughout the 2015 playoffs and World Series.

Perhaps less widely known, Mr. Rodriguez is the Founder and CEO of A-ROD Corp, a private holding company with businesses in the U.S. and Latin America. Under his leadership, Mr. Rodriguez has turned A-ROD Corp into a significant investment vehicle focusing on several growth sectors including real estate, high-end fitness centers, and automotive dealerships. His long-term vision, coupled with his ability to bring highly experienced management teams together and his willingness to raise capital, has built a track record of positive returns for investors and partners.

In addition to his professional endeavors, Mr. Rodriguez actively pursues specific philanthropic initiatives. A primary focus is the Boys and Girls Club where he spent his youth and where he has dedicated the last 20 years volunteering, supporting, and helping to create life-changing environments for at-risk youth and under-served communities.

Mr. Rodriguez played his final game with the New York Yankees on Friday August 12th, against the Tampa Bay Rays at Yankee Stadium. To honor the retirement of one of the greatest players in MLB history, FOX broadcast the game to a national television audience; the game was available for live and on-demand streaming as well.

After 20 years on the field, Mr. Rodriguez now serves as a senior adviser to Hal Steinbrenner of the New York Yankees.
