Near record crowd watches A-Rod play 3rd for RiverDogs

Posted: Updated:

Nearly 8,300 fans packed into Riley Park Tuesday night to watch who many consider to be one of  the best to ever play the game, play third base for the Charleston RiverDogs.

Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez played three innings for the RiverDogs as part of his rehab stint from off-season hip surgery.

Despite hitting into a double play and striking out in his only two at-bats, fans watched and recorded every movement by A-Rod.

Boos and cheers rained down on A-Rod during his time on the field but luckily Mother Nature wouldn't let it rain during the game and stop play.

Rodriguez says he also plans on playing part of the game Wednesday night against Rome. 

Another sellout crowd is expected.
