Alex Rodriguez Park at Mark Light Field - There's No Place like It
Renovations to Alex Rodriguez Park are thanks in large part to a $3.9 million contribution by New York Yankees third baseman and 11-time MLB All-Star Alex Rodriguez. The gift - the largest ever to the University of Miami baseball program - has assisted the program in continuing to develop first-class facilities.
