This could be the end for New York Yankees designated hitter Alex Rodriguez. Following Friday’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays, Rodriguez will be released, effectively ending his major-league career.
If Friday is truly Rodriguez’s last game ever, he’ll leave behind one of the most complicated legacies of any athlete in recent memory. He’s already one of the most polarizing players to ever put on a jersey.
No matter how you feel about A-Rod, Friday’s game promises to be one of the biggest moments of the 2016 season. The good news: You can watch the game live right here at Yahoo Sports!

Let’s face it, if you’re a baseball fan, how can you miss out on this game? Over his career, Alex Rodriguez has been an uber-prospect, exceptional young player, All-Star, MVP, sellout, steroid user, Derek Jeter hater, Derek Jeter teammate, World Series winner, cheater, redemptive figure and broken down superstar.
