Alex Rodriguez has been enjoying an extra long vacation this summer after Major League Baseball banned him for the entire 2014 season due to his alleged links to steroids and HGH use!
The Bronx Bomber eventually accepted his punishment, but according to Tim Elfrink and Gus Garcia-Roberts' new book Blood Sport: Alex Rodriguez, Biogenesis and the Quest to End Baseball’s Steroid Era, A-Rod may have not been at fault!

Finally! Alex Rodriguez is making headlines for something GOOD!!
Just last weekend, A-Rod made his way to the Dominican Republic to lend a helping hand at the sixth annual David Ortiz Celebrity Golf Classic!
Alex was on the auctioning block as one lucky fan got a chance to big on a lunch date with the beleaguered baseballer, and all of the controversy he's facing didn't stop one person from dropping $13,000 on a chance to hang with him!
Dayum! That better be one BIG lunch!
In total, the charity event raised a whopping $350,000 for the David Ortiz Children's Fund as well as the World Pediatric Project and Massachusetts General Hospital for Children!
Wowzers! Well done A-Rod!
