ESPN's Rodriguez: Personal items stolen from rental SUV

By The Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A rental vehicle being used by ESPN baseball analyst Alex Rodriguez was broken into Sunday night, and Rodriguez said several items of a personal and sentimental nature were stolen.

The break-in happened while Rodriguez and other members of ESPN's "Sunday Night Baseball" crew were having dinner at a restaurant near Oracle Park after a game Rodriguez called between the Philadelphia Phillies and San Francisco Giants.

Rodriguez said in a statement Monday he was encouraged that police had security-camera video of the crime.

ESPN said it was working with local authorities. The items were stolen from an SUV that ESPN had rented for Rodriguez and the production crew.

San Francisco police spokesman Adam Lobsinger said in an email that a bag, laptop, camera and pieces of jewelry were stolen. He also said the department's burglary unit is handling the investigation.

The city has dealt with a rash of car burglaries. According to police, there were 11,269 reports of break-ins — an average of 62 per day — in San Francisco during the first half of the year.

Rodriguez is in his second year with ESPN. He was not the only member of the network's crew to be involved in an incident over the weekend. Analyst Jessica Mendoza missed Sunday's game after being involved in a car crash on Friday near her home in Oregon. ESPN said Mendoza was not seriously injured and was recovering with her family and was expected back in the booth soon.
