Rodriguez fighting suspension
(NEWSCHANNEL 3) The Yankees didn't make the playoffs this year for only the second time in 19 seasons, but star third baseman Alex Rodriguez has his own post-season battle to contend with.
Monday his team of attorneys will face off against Major League Baseball in a closed-door meeting. They are fighting his 211-game suspension, baseball's longest doping punishment.
Even on suspension Rodriguez will still get $80-million of his record $275-million contract.
Overturning A-Rod's suspension could be seen as a major defeat for the league.
Arguments are expected to last about five days with a decision coming soon after.
