Oh if life couldn’t get any more weird for Alex Rodriguez. The Yankees third-baseman is in the midst of a minor league rehab assignment, and battling MLB and what appears to be a future suspension due to his involvement with the Miami-based Biogenesis clinic. While playing for the Trenton Thunder on Monday, A-Rod appeared at the field for the Reading Phillies and they supplied him with his own personal security detail, which, get this, includes a former WWE wrestler and a high school principal.

According to the Patriot News, Corey Jones, is the principal is in charge of making sure A-Rod turns right or left where ever he goes, or so it seems. Then there is Gene Snitsky, who was best known for his obscene backne while a member of the WWE, is the lead muscle of this 5-man security team.

Apparently this is common behavior from the Phillies AA team, as they have often welcomed several high-profile stars from the Yankees organization in similar situations. They do their best to keep an eye on these guys to make sure that nothing happens to them.
