He wrote, "I take full responsibility for the mistakes that led to my suspension for the 2014 season. I regret that my actions made the situation worse than it needed to be. To Major league baseball, the Yankees, the Steinbrenner family, the Players Association, and you, the fans, I can only say I'm sorry.

"I accept that many of you will not believe my apology or anything that I say at this point. I understand why and that's on me. I'm ready to put this chapter behind me and play some ball."

Rodriguez made headlines after he confessed he used performance enhancing drug steroids for the 2001, 2002 and 2003 baseball seasons. As a disciplinary action, he was suspended for the 2014 season. He tested positive for the drug back in 2013.

He went on to say in his letter that he had the "longest suspension in history for PED use."

He maintained that he has done his time and "the matter is over."

Rodriguez also reminded fans that he has been in love with baseball since he was a child. He ended the note with what they can expect from him this season.

"When I go to Spring Training, I will do everything I can to be the best player and teammate possible, earn a spot on the Yankees and help us win."
