A-Roid Park

A-Roid Park

The University of Miami named its new baseball stadium after a famous U of Miami dropout: Alex Rodriguez Park. The steroid-using Yankee slugger will be celebrated at a special event in Coral Gables this Sunday. This fundraising dinner is bound to give university president Donna Shalala indigestion.

Sports Illustrated outed A-Rod as a steroid user and a liar last week, and many folks — especially Miami alumni — are not thrilled with the idea of honoring him. The university is in a tough spot, since the wealthy ballplayer kicked in millions to build the stadium.

“Dinner on the Diamond” at A-Rod Park will be the most exciting sports event this Friday night. ESPN: be there, live.
