Exiled New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez is using some of his abundant free time to make some new business connections and maybe even look for a new job on the popular networking site LinkedIn.
According to The Wall Street Journal's Brian Costa, people began receiving the website's ubiquitous e-mail invites from Rodriguez last week, with a profile that listed him as the "Founder, CEO and President of ARod Corp." Costa reports:
A LinkedIn spokeswoman said the company has not been in touch with Rodriguez's camp to confirm it is an official page but said, "All signals indicate it is a real profile." Rodriguez's spokesman didn't respond to multiple requests for comment.
Rodriguez hasn't been all business during his season-long suspension, heading to South Bend, Ind., to take in the Michigan-Notre Dame game last weekend.
