Reports of the demise of Alex Rodríguez as a productive player in Major League Baseball (MLB) appear to have been greatly exaggerated. After he was suspended for the entire 2014 season for using performance-enhancing drugs, most discussion of the 39-year-old focused on whether the New York Yankees would find a role for the former superstar, or simply pony up the $61m they owe him and cut him from the team. But Rodríguez has stunned the MLB betting world with a hot streak that has made him the American League’s seventh-best hitter over the season’s first two weeks. And on April 17th, he generated the first headlines related to his on-field performance in years, by crushing a high, outside fastball for the longest home run anyone has hit so far in 2015. The high-arcing shot flew 477 feet (145 metres), before landing on the concourse behind the lower deck of left-field seats in Tampa Bay’s Tropicana Field.
