Attention all lady humans attending next week’s All-Star festivities in the Motor City ; Tigers C Ivan Rodriguez is officially on the prowl. From the Detroit News’ Tom Gage.
For the first time in print, Pudge Rodriguez has acknowledged that he’s getting a divorce from his wife of 15 years, Maribel.
“Tell them all now that I’m a single man,” he was quoted as saying in Monday’s Flint Journal.
The Tigers have known for months that Rodriguez and his wife were divorcing, but felt they shouldn’t comment until Pudge did — and even when he did, they were courteously hesitant.
“It’s not my place (to talk about it),” Trammell said. “but as you can imagine, it’s been tough. It’s been an issue for him for four months now. I know it’s been a burden for him, but he still comes to the ballpark and prepares himself as he always has.
