A-Rod vs. MLB/MLBPA dismissed

The lawsuits filed by Alex Rodriguez against Major League Baseball and the Players Association will apparently not happen. Jim Baumbach, who writes for Newsday Sports tweeted out that today was supposed to be when A-Rod responded to MLB and MLBPA wanting his case against them dismissed.


Rodriguez had sued Major League Baseball for many things, including defamation, and also sued the MLBPA for improper representation. The voluntary dismissal of these cases by Rodriguez’ camp are somewhat astonishing, as it seemed that A-Rod and his lawyers were very much set on taking all of their issues to court. The MLBPA has since issued a statement regarding A-Rod’s dismissal of the lawsuits.

Alex Rodriguez has done the right thing by withdrawing his lawsuit. His decision to move forward is in everyone’s best interest.
