A-Rod, who is engaged to Bronx singing star Jennifer Lopez, was in the California city to broadcast the Giants-Phillies game for ESPN, according to the report.

Alex "A-Rod" Rodriguez, a Coral Gables resident, left about $500,000 in jewelry and electronics inside of an ESPN producer's rental auto and a thief took advantage of his mistake in San Francisco. "We're working with local authorities to address it". The vehicle was parked about three blocks from the venue.

In a separate statement, the sportsman claimed police officials had video footage of the perpetrators, adding: "I am saddened that several items that were of a personal nature and irreplaceable with sentimental value were taken". The vehicle was parked roughly three blocks from Oracle Park, and the culprit made off with an estimated $500,000 in items including a laptop, camera and jewelry. Per the report, the estimated value of everything that was stolen was almost $500,000. The department also made the report confidential, which means only members involved in the investigation can access it.

Rodriguez, 44, is in his second season as an analyst on "Sunday Night Baseball" after a 22-year MLB career that ended in 2016.

Rodriguez and Mendoza, of course, do color for ESPN's weekly game.

Overall, the trip to San Francisco was a poor one for two-thirds of the Sunday Night Baseball crew. ESPN said Mendoza was not seriously injured and was recovering with her family and was expected back in the booth soon.
