Rodriguez had been at the stadium almost the entire day. he and his ESPN crew called the Giants' 9-6 win over Philadelphia on "Sunday Night Baseball".

The Chronicle's Evan Sernoffsky reports the vehicle was an SUV rented by ESPN for Rodriguez and the other members of the broadcast team.

"It's an unfortunate situation".

A thief broke into the former Yankees slugger's rental vehicle sometime between 9 and 11 p.m. Sunday while it was parked about three blocks from Oracle Park, the San Francisco Chronicle reported, citing law-enforcement sources.

The "Sunday Night Baseball" broadcaster was at the baseball stadium working with his ESPN crew for most of the day, according to the website.

Rodriguez and Mendoza, of course, do color for ESPN's weekly game.

The case is being treated as a high priority by investigators. No arrests have been made as of Monday night.
