The book was authored by Selena Roberts, the Sports Illustrated senior writer who, along with David Epstein, broke the news in February that Rodriguez tested positive for steroids in 2003. Rodriguez subsequently admitted to using steroids from 2001 through 2003.
The book, as first reported by the New York Daily News, claims Rodriguez, while playing shortstop for the Texas Rangers, tipped opposing batters about what pitches were coming in lopsided games. Rodriguez, according to the book, tipped those players so they could reciprocate and provide him with what pitches were coming in one-sided games so that he could pad his batting statistics.
