Hat tip to sports columnist Mike Woods of the Post Crescent who back in 2007 was wondering whether an A-Rod Field for 13-year-olds made much sense.
From Woods: "Whether or not he started his career in Appleton, he doesn't appear to be the kind of individual you want to associate yourself with or who deserves such an honor. All he did was play here for a couple of months. Not even a full season. He has no real ties to this city. He's never been back to lend a hand or contribute a dollar. Nothing. And we owe him nothing."
