A rental car being used by Yankees legend and broadcaster Alex Rodriguez was broken into on Sunday near Oracle Park and an estimated $500,000 in electronics and jewelry were stolen from the vehicle, according to a report from the San Francisco Chronicle.

The San Francisco Police Department confirmed that a car was broken into between 9 and 11 p.m. on Sunday on the 400 block of Brannan Street, which is about a five-minute walk from Oracle Park. Rodriguez was in town calling the San Francisco Giants game against the Philadelphia Phillies for ESPN.

Among the items stolen were bags, a camera, camera equipment, a laptop, jewelry and miscellaneous electronics, according to SFPD. The police department's policy is not to release the identity of victims of a crime.

The SFPD's Burglary Unit is conducting an investigation into the incident.

A-Rod has been retired from baseball since 2016.

According to The Chronicle's Evan Sernoffsky, ESPN had rented an SUV for Rodriguez and other members of the broadcast team. They were out getting dinner after the game when the incident occurred, Sernoffsky wrote on Twitter.
