A-Rod booed in return to Texas

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Alex Rodriguez was heartily booed when introduced before his first game in Texas since his admission earlier this year that he used steroids while playing for the Rangers.

Rodriguez played for the Rangers from 2001-03, when he first became baseball's highest-paid player with a then-record $252 million, 10-year contract. He was traded to the New York Yankees before spring training in 2004.

A-Rod didn't answer questions from reporters before the game, but indicated that he would talk "later."
