Alex Rodriguez Sues Major League Baseball, Selig

Alex Rodriguez

(Reuters) – New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez has sued Major League Baseball and Commissioner Bud Selig and accused them of trying to destroy his reputation and his career.

The embattled third baseman also filed an additional malpractice lawsuit against the Yankees team doctor Chris Ahmad and a New York hospital for misdiagnosing a hip injury, according to MLB.com.

Rodriguez, who was suspended for 211 games for his alleged use of performance enhancing drugs, claims the league and commissioner are engaged in “vigilante justice” and are interfering with his lucrative contracts and business relationships.

MLB and Selig are trying to make an example of Rodriguez, the lawsuit said, “to gloss over Commissioner Self’s past inaction and tacit approval of the use of performance enhancing substances in baseball … and in an attempt to secure his legacy as the ‘savior’ of America’s past time.”
