Not too many guys from there get to where I am, I mean Deion Branch , a Super Bowl MVP with the Patriots , is from there. And Ricardo Lockette , who was the intended receiver on Russell Wilson's last throw, is also from Albany, but they were never in position that I am currently in. I'm in a higher position, but at the same time us three can make a difference in a small community such as Albany. We can show kids that you don't have to be from major cities to be who you want to be, whether it's football or a lawyer or a doctor, whatever it is that they want to do.

Rodriguez plans to meet with Yanks ahead of spring training - Yahoo Sports
Rodriguez first sounded out the Yankees about a possible meeting earlier in the offseason, but New York held off then. Rodriguez sued Yankees team physician Dr. Christopher Ahmad and New York-Presbyterian Hospital in October 2013, accusing them of mishandling his medical care during the 2012 AL playoffs, then withdrew the case last June. A-Rod turns 40 in July and has not played a full season since 2007 because of leg injuries, operations on both hips and the suspension. He was banned for 211 games in August 2013 by then-baseball Commissioner Bud Selig, and the penalty was cut to the 2014 season by an arbitrator.
