A-Rod opting to be a Dominican in 2009 in the WBC

Alex Rodriguez, who initially wanted to play for the Dominican Republic team in the 2006 World Baseball Classic, only to be pressured in to switching to play for the U.S. team, apparently wants to play for the Dominicans in 2009, according to Gordon Edes of Yahoo! Sports.

Alex Rodriguez, who nearly sat out the inaugural World Baseball Classic because he did not want to choose between playing for his native United States or the Dominican Republic, the country of his parents’ birth, is changing uniforms for the 2009 Classic.

The New York Yankees’ third baseman, who was on a star-studded U.S team that failed to advance to the semifinals of the first WBC, plans to play for the Dominican Republic this spring, according to Dominican slugger David Ortiz of the Boston Red Sox.

Ortiz is hosting a charity golf tournament in the Dominican city of Punta Cana this weekend. He said Rodriguez, who is playing in the tournament, is expected to announce his decision at the function. Rodriguez and Ortiz are close friends.

“He wants to play for the Dominican team,” Ortiz said by telephone Thursday. “We’ll talk about it now after he gets here, and he’ll probably announce it here.”

It seems no matter what A-Rod does he will be criticized for it.
