NY Yankees John Sterling Offered Help From Unlikely Source

NY Yankees John Sterling Offered Help From Unlikely Source

One of the victims of the horrendous Avalon apartment fire in Edgewater last month was veteran New York Yankees broadcaster John Sterling.

Sterling has been on the move in an effort to rebuild his life, and one of the first people to reach out to him with help was someone not exactly associated with good will these days.

The New York Daily News reports that Alex Rodriguez offered Sterling his Manhattan apartment after the fire occurred. “We talked right after the fire. Alex felt terrible about it,” Sterling said. “I guess he was in Florida.”

Rodriguez is preparing to return to the Yankees in 2015 after being suspended last year. He and Sterling have a good relationship. “I’m rooting for Alex,” Sterling said, according to Fansided. “He’s a friend.”

Sterling first moved to a hotel after the Edgewater fire. Yahoo Sports noted that he has had his share of support since. Sterling received an offer to live temporarily in Upper Saddle River, and former Yankee manager Buck Showalter reportedly said Sterling could stay in his Baltimore apartment.
