Jeff Skopin / ESPN New YorkMet by a small group of supporters, Alex Rodriguez arrives for a fourth day of meetings at MLB's offices on Thursday.NEW YORK -- Alex Rodriguez arrived at Major League Baseball's Park Ave. offices at 9:15 a.m. Thursday morning to significantly less fanfare than the previous three days.
About 15 supporters greeted A-Rod as he entered the building at 245 Park Ave. in midtown Manhattan for Day 4 of his hearing. He is currently appealing a 211-game suspension for violating the sport's drug-testing policy.
While the supporters' barricade was set up in its normal place on the sidewalk, there was no signage or flags.
A-Rod heard some chants. They just weren't that loud.
A spokesman for the supporters says attendance is expected to increase later in the day.
