There’s something about being an ESPN color commentator and renting a car on the West Coast.
One day after it was revealed that Jessica Mendoza missed ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball telecast because she had been involved in a car accident in California, Alex Rodriguez had $500K worth of goods swiped from his rental car, according to a report in the New York Post and San Francisco Chronicle.
Rodriguez and Mendoza, of course, do color for ESPN’s weekly game.
Rodriguez, who worked Sunday’s game between San Francisco and Philadelphia with Matt Vasgersian, reportedly had a half-million dollars worth of jewelry and electronics stolen from his rented vehicle. According to law-enforcement sources, A-Rod’s car was parked three blocks from Oracle Park, the home of the Giants.
The heist took place sometime between 9-11 p.m. when Rodriguez was still working the game. The thief reportedly swiped the former slugger’s jewelry, laptop, camera and bag.

The San Francisco Police Department wouldn’t confirm that A-Rod was the victim of the robbery.
Mendoza experienced a ‘scary ordeal’ Friday when her car was rear-ended at full speed on the Southern California freeway.
