Alex Rodriguez, who said that he and his lawyers "crushed it" in his grievance hearing against Major League Baseball, isn't backing down from his stance that MLB commissioner Bud Selig should have testified.

Rodriguez's lawyers filed an updated lawsuit against the league in federal court in Manhattan on Tuesday, in which they call out the commissioner.

"Mr. Selig lacked the courage of his convictions to explain under oath the reasons for the suspension and the conduct of his investigators," the lawyers wrote in a 33-page amended complaint.

When arbitrator Fredric Horowitz ruled that Selig didn't have to testify, Rodriguez walked out of the hearing.

The revised lawsuit also accuses baseball investigators of imitating cops in order to gain access to witnesses, according to the New York Daily News Sports I-Team.

Both Selig and A-Rod were at the funeral for Michael Weiner, the former executive director of the MLB Players Association, on Sunday, but did not cross paths.

A decision on the case is expected in January.
