Alex Rodriguez's rental car was broken into Sunday night in San Francisco and the thief stole around $500,000 worth of jewelry and electronics, the San Francisco Chronicle reported Monday citing "sources familiar with the investigation."
Rodriguez, who called the Giants' 9-6 win over the Philadelphia Phillies at Oracle Park for ESPN's "Sunday Night Baseball," was not identified by San Francisco police as the victim in order to keep up with department policy. The Chronicle reported, citing sources, that a camera, laptop, jewelry and a bag were taken from Rodriguez's rental car between 9 and 11 p.m. on the 400 block of Brannan Street. That block is just around the corner from Oracle Park, and Giants-Phillies ended at 7:39 p.m. PT.
The case, according to The Chronicle, is "a high priority" within the department. The case report is confidential and thus cannot be accessed by officers who aren't working on the investigation, and sources told the paper that investigators collected evidence from the vehicle overnight.
NBC Bay Area found that a record of nearly 30,000 cars were broken into in San Francisco in 2017, and The Chronicle's database lists 12,654 reported break-ins through July of this year. Year-over-year, the reported break-in totals through July were down by 1,547, according to The Chronicle's data.
Rodriguez, a 22-year MLB veteran, has called games for "Sunday Night Baseball" since 2018. The Giants are not scheduled to be on ESPN's weekly Sunday broadcast for the remainder of the season.
