Rodriguez was in the Big Apple about eight miles away having dinner with his boo, Jennifer Lopez.
A-Rod said he was planning to spend Mother’s Day with his mom in Miami, and according to TMZ. He was actually in Miami on Sunday morning. He did offer his former teammate congrats via social media (below).
