I took this photo of Alex Rodriguez, better known as A-Rod, on his first day practicing with the Dominican team playing in the World Baseball Classic. For some reason, A-Rod was adjusting his cup throughout fielding drills and I snapped this picture when he turned toward the fans along the thirdbase line. I think it represents how he feels about the media hounding him about steroids. Ironically, I took this photo on February 3, just days before his steroid allegations became public knowledge. Regardless of his steroid use, Rodriguez is still one of the best players in baseball history, and he will be remembered that way because he admitted his mistake and apologized.
