TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Alex Rodriguez is back on the field for the first time since surgery on his left hip almost four months ago.
He joined a group of injured New York Yankees starters Monday at the team's minor league complex. The 37-year-old third baseman ran, played catch and hit off a tee.
Rodriguez says it's ``like being 8 years old again when I first grabbed a bat.'' He adds that it's ``pretty exciting'' and he's ``really looking forward to getting back.''
Rodriguez had surgery Jan. 16 and could return to the Yankees after the All-Star break.
