Report: Alex Rodriguez Loses $500,000 Worth Of Items Stolen From Car After Sunday Night Baseball Broadcast

According to a report from the San Francisco Chronicle, about $500,000 worth of items were stolen from Alex Rodriguez's rental car in San Francisco while he was in town working the ESPN broadcast for the Giants-Phillies game over the weekend. The car was reportedly parked only a few blocks from Oracle Park when someone broke into his SUV and made off with a camera, laptop, jewelry and bag on Sunday night.

Police suspect that the crime was committed between 9 p.m. and 11 p.m., while Rodriguez and several other ESPN staffers were having dinner after the game. As of Monday, no arrests have been made but an investigation is ongoing and it is reportedly deemed a "high priority" case. 

Being the victim of a car break-in is usually a pretty petty annoyance, but one would imagine it's significantly more of a headache when a half-million dollars worth of stuff disappears from inside the vehicle. That had to be a pretty nice bag!

It's an extremely tough break for Rodriguez, though I suppose you have to be rather fortunate to even have $500,000 worth of stuff stashed in your car in the first place. Not to mention the fact that you have to be rather careless to be willing to leave that stuff unattended in a parked car in the middle of a major city -- one that has become rather notorious for car burglaries in recent years.
