Alex Rodriguez made his first career appearance at first base in an exhibition game over the weekend.
Rodriguez handled three chances in three innings at the position for the New York Yankees in a Grapefruit League game against the Houston Astros.
"It was fun," Rodriguez said. "It was quite interesting after 20 years in the league to see the game from a totally different lens. It was pretty cool."
Joe Girardi says he can envision a scenario in which Rodriguez is asked to handle the position in the regular season.
"The toughest things are when you get into cuts, relays, and bunts, and we didn't get into any of that today," Girardi said. "Fielding ground balls, I'm not worried about that. Really, I'm not. Catching the ball, I'm not worried about that. I'd think he'd be pretty good around the bag, even scooping, because you get a lot of those hot shots at first base."
