The USA Today and other sources are reporting that New York Yankee and baseball great Alex Rodriguez is being investigated for partaking in illegal poker games.

The Washington Heights born slugger is of Dominican Republic descent and the current boyfriend of Cameron Diaz.  He will be interviewed on the matter shortly, says a Major League Baseball spokesperson.

“We take this very seriously and have been investigating this matter since the initial allegation. As part of the investigation, the commissioner’s office will interview Mr. Rodriguez.”

The investigation stems from allegations made by tabloid Star Magazine that Rodriguez was in high-stakes games with celebrities Matt Damon, Leonardo DiCaprio amongst others.  His only comment on the matter thus far has come from his spokesman saying he never participated.
