Ivan Rodriguez Had to Skip His Own Wedding for His Major League Debut

This Wednesday the class of 2017 MLB hall of fame inductees will be announced. Ivan Rodriguez is among the nineteen names left on the ballot.

Rodriguez made his major league debut back in 1991. This is the first year he is eligible for the hall of fame. Rodriguez's first time playing in the bigs was a little bitter sweet though.

The day he was called up Rodriguez was actually planning on getting married. The plan was to get married on the field where he was currently playing. The night before they held a rehearsal and everything seemed as if it would work out. However the next morning Rodriguez's agent told him he had to choose between staying and going through with the wedding, or meeting the Rangers in Chicago. Rodriguez went to Chicago and never went back down to the minors.
