NEW YORK — "I'm going to try to do exactly what I did last year: see ball, hit ball,'' Rodriguez said. "Keep it really simple. Enjoy it, have fun.''
After a stellar 2015 campaign, which saw him reach 3,000 career hits, New York Yankees' designated hitter Alex Rodriguez discusses the possibility of passing Babe Ruth in all-time homers.
"When you start playing baseball at 9-years-old, you never think about tying anybody, let alone a guy like Babe Ruth," Rodriguez said.
A-Rod hit 33 dingers in 2015, after sitting out the previous season suspended from the MLB for using performance-enhancing substances. Alex admits that although it was a little difficult at times, he enjoyed returning to the Bigs.
"It was reconnecting with the game, reconnecting with the clubhouse," Rodriguez said. "I love the clubhouse. What I found is how much fun the game is and last year I had a lot of fun."
Rodriguez is currently 4th all-time with 687 home runs. The Babe sits at 3rd with 714.
Hank Aaron is No. 2 with 755 homers and the top spot, albeit controversial, belongs to Barry Bonds with his 762 home runs.
"I'm very happy to bring my lumber," A-Rod said with a smile, as he anticipates an exciting 2016 season.
