“Benefit from your additional time at home by reading, especially by choosing books that can help educate you,” Rodriguez wrote on Instagram. “Find something that interests you and never stop learning!”
After amassing a fortune during his lengthy MLB career, Rodriguez began investing his earnings in various business opportunities. The 44-year-old founded A-Rod Corp., a holding firm that manages his investments across real estate, art, health and wellness and various other fields.
