A-Rod just went yard, big time. On his very first swing of Spring Training, the Yankees DH sent a two-run shot to the moon against the Phillies. Even more impressive is the fact that Rodriguez hadn't taken a live pitching swing at all this year, not even in practice. Even Rodriguez himself was surprised.
"It certainly was surprising," A-Rod told MLB.com. "That was the last thing I was expecting. I hadn't taken a swing on live pitching; that was my first one. It caught me by surprise."
