A-Rod Hand-Writes an Apology to Fans
A-Rod issued a handwritten apology to fans today.   (Major League Baseball)

Alex Rodriguez is set to return to Major League Baseball later this month after sitting out the entire 2014 season, and ESPN reports that today he continued his penance in the form of a hand-written letter apologizing to pretty much everyone. "I take full responsibility for the mistakes that led to my suspension for the 2014 season," Rodriguez wrote in the letter. "I regret that my actions made the situation worse than it needed to be. To Major League Baseball, the Yankees, the Steinbrenner family, the Players Association and you, the fans, I can only say I'm sorry." He continued, saying that "I'm ready to put this chapter behind me and play some ball." (Another thing Rodriguez should probably apologize for? This.)
