A-Rod Hopes He Can Still Make Hall of Fame - Sports Gossip
Don't hold your breath

Former New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez knows that his history with performance-enhancing drugs might have ruined his chances of getting into the National Baseball Hall of Fame.

Rodriguez told Cigar Aficionado that despite his mistakes, he still dreams of making the cut at Cooperstown.

"There's rules, and you have to follow the rules. I made those mistakes, and at the end of the day I have to live by those mistakes," Rodriguez said. "Whether I get in or not -- and let's be clear, I want to get in, I hope I get in, I pray I get in -- if I don't, I think I have a bigger opportunity yet again. And the platform of my mistakes, the good the bad and the ugly, has allowed me to have a loud voice to the next generation, to say when in doubt, just look at my career. Look at the good, look at the bad, look at the ugly and just make good decisions. Have the power of restriction that I didn't have."

He added: 

Nice silver lining for Alex. 

The 14-time All-Star has three AL MVP awards, 10 Silver Slugger honors, five AL home run titles and one World Series ring with the Yankees.

He's fourth on the MLB all-time home run list and has more than 3,000 career hits.
