Alex Rodriguez to serve as a celebrity picker on ESPN's 'College GameDay' from Miami
The former Major League Baseball star was on hand for Miami's win over Virginia Tech last weekend, too
With three games to go in the regular season, Miami is back and hosting one of the biggest games of a loaded Week 11 in college football.
The No. 7 Hurricanes host No. 3 Notre Dame at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida, on Saturday night in a game that is getting special attention from ESPN's "College GameDay," and former major-league star Alex Rodriguez will serve as a celebrity picker.
The former slugger for the Seattle Mariners, Texas Rangers and New York Yankees grew up in the Miami area and played baseball and football for Westminster Christian School in Miami. During last week's win over Virginia Tech, cameras caught A-Rod -- -- in a suite cheering on the team.
A lifelong Miami fan, Rodriguez nearly enrolled at Miami to play baseball before being drafted first overall by the Mariners in the 1993 MLB Draft. In addition to being close to enrolling at "The U," Fox Sports noted that the Miami football program had very real interest in A-Rod playing quarterback for the Hurricanes.
He currently serves on the Board of Trustees for the University of Miami and helped renovate Miami's baseball stadium, which has since been renamed Alex Rodriguez Park at Mark Light Field.
Rodriguez retired from baseball in 2016 and has been working in television and serving as a special adviser to the Yankees.
