A-ROD is no longer a “social media free agent” as the NY Daily News put it, with the announcement that Yankee superstar Alex Rodriguez is now on Facebook! He’s definitely showing his fan appreciation, and even used his first post to tell everyone about the great time he had with a Charitybuzz bidder at spring training recently! As resident New Yorkers we are hyped to see those pinstripes dominating on the field, and on the social mediawaves! Go Yanks!
