Yankees chief testifies at Rodriguez’s hearing

Yankees President Randy Levine has testified at Alex Rodriguez’s grievance hearing and denied conspiring with Major League Baseball on the 211-game suspension given to the New York third baseman in the summer.

On the 10th day of the hearing, which started in September, Levine was asked a series of questions Tuesday by Rodriguez’s lawyer, Joseph Tacopina, according to a person with knowledge of the proceeding. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the proceedings are confidential.

The person said Levine testified for 10 to15 minutes and denied having any personal gain from Rodriguez’s suspension or the Yankees falling under the luxury tax threshold; or of having an agreement to receive a commission of any money the team saved because of the ban.
