rodriguez played in 89 games for the padres in 1980, and hit an even .200 before his contract was purchased by the yankees in august. rodriguez finished out the season in the bronx, hitting .220 with 3 homers in 52 games. his first yankee home run came a few days after he joined the club, and was a walk-off job against britt burns and the white sox.

rodriguez's travels continued after the season ended as the yankees sent him to toronto, and the blue jays traded him to the white sox prior to the start of the 1982 campaign.
