(KTNV) -- Major League Baseball player Alex Rodriguez addressed the media before last night's game, calling the last seven months a nightmare.
Rodriguez is facing suspension from baseball through the 2014 season for steroid use and he is planning on fighting it.
13 players were suspended by Major League Baseball yesterday.
The MLB suspended Rodriguez for 211 regular-season games.
The lengthy suspension was a result of the player's alleged use of "numerous forms of performance enhancing substances" and for attempting to coverup the violations.
The suspension could be career ender for the baseball star.
The other 12 players have accepted the leagues' 50-game suspensions.
Rodriguez has the biggest contract of the suspended players.
Rodriguez will still be allowed to play while he fights the suspension.
A total of 18 players have now been sanctioned for their connection to Biogenesis, the Florida anti-aging clinic accused of distributing the banned substances to the players.
