On ornament box:
Since his debut as the No. 1 draft pick in 1993 at the age of
17, Alex Rodriguez has become one of the greatest
Major League Baseball players ever. He quickly proved
himself a rare combination of power hitter and acrobatic
shortstop. A consistent leader at bat, he enjoyed
his best year in 2001, with 52 homers and 135 RBI. His awards
include the American League Gold Glove in 2002 and
2003 and Most Valuable Player in 2003. Though a supremely
gifted player, A-Rod is loved as much for his charisma and
modesty. He was traded to the Yankees in February 2004 -
a Valentine gift for New York fans.
