Vox Pop 8/6/13: Doping, Baseball and A-Rod
New York Yankee third baseman Alex Rodridguez is facing a ban that could sit him on the sidelines until 2015. The slugger, who has often been tied to (but not convicted of) the use of performance enhancing drugs, has vowed to appeal the suspension, handed down yesterday by Major League Baseball. While he awaits his appeal hearing, Rodriguez, who is baseball's highest played player, suited up and took the field for the Yankees last night. On today's Vox Pop, Alan Chartock welcome's the Times Union's Pete Iorizzo to discuss baseball's latest crisis.
