Al B. Al: 'Only the Young' Edition

By Andrew Marchand

Al B. Al is a recurring feature of the blog in which we highlight the wit and wisdom of Alex Rodriguez and his unique way of expressing himself.

To celebrate the home opener and his move to third in the lineup, Alex Rodriguez chose "Only the Young" by Journey to step to the plate in the first inning. The inspirational song apparently helped as A-Rod knocked a single to left. He would come around to score on Nick Swisher's three-run double.
