Alex’s letter to fans:
Alex Rodriguez apologize to Yankee fans yesterday. Being a huge Yankee fan, I decided to read the letter to my son. Below is the letter he wrote in response to ARod:
Dear Mr. Arod,
Hello, I am just a little kid, but I wanted to tell you that I read your letter. Well, actually just to be honest, because lying is wrong (hahaha) I didn’t read it, my dad read it to me. I think you were trying to say sorry about doing bad things. It is really good to say you’re sorry when you do bad things. Sorry is what my dad says to my mom all the time when he says dumb things.
I don’t really know what a steroid is. But my dad says you have to use a needle and I.DO.NOT.LIKE.NEEDLES! One time at the doctor’s office I had to get this stupid shot so I wouldn’t get something called measles, rumps and mubellas and I hated it. I cried and cried and even kicked the doctor when I saw the needle. So, I’m not sure why people would say you took a shot yourself. I hope you didn’t cry, well actually if you cried that might be a good thing. Mom and dad call that a natural consequence.
I want to ask you a question though. In your letter you say sorry. I learned that saying sorry means you made a mistake and won’t do it again, or again, or again. I hope that your sorry means that you are going to just play baseball and hit a lot of homeruns.
I love the Yankees because… because… well, I’m only ten months old, I don’t even know any other teams. I want the Yankees to win a lot of games and win the World Series so that my dad is happy and buys me a lot of cool Yankees onesies and stuff. If you can help them win then I know my family is happy to have you back on the team.
Good luck this year.
Remember no needles and no strikes outs!
