A-Rod and Charleston Set for Augusta
AUGUSTA, GA. - Alex Rodriguez has caused a buzz in Charleston. On Tuesday, Rodriguez started for the Charleston RiverDogs in his first rehab start since having surgery on his left hip.
While it's still uncertain where Rodriguez will go next, he is still on Charleston's roster and is expect to be in today's starting lineup.
The Augusta GreenJackets are starting an Augusta for A-Rod campaign in hopes of encouraging New York Yankees General Manager, Brian Cashman to continue Mr. Rodriguez's rehab stint with the Charleston RiverDogs in Augusta.

In case Rodriguez doesn't come to Augusta, all fans who purchased a ticket with the AROD code can still attend the GreenJackets vs. RiverDogs game on July 4 and receive a free ticket for equal or lesser value to another game through this weekend's series with Charleston.
