"It's my first time" in South Carolina, Rodriguez said. "Great Southern hospitality so far."

Players from the RiverDogs and the Rome Braves lined the dugouts to watch Rodriguez work. It's the third straight season Rodriguez has spent time in the minors coming back from injuries, and he would not comment about Major League Baseball's investigation into the now-closed Biogenesis of America anti-aging clinic.

Rodriguez looked smooth in the field during warm-ups, grabbing everything hit his way. His throws to first were strong and on target. When he was done with grounders, Rodriguez signed autographs for fans gathered next to the RiverDogs dugout.

"Good luck to you, Alex," said Charleston resident Blanche Lloyd after getting a signed baseball.

There were 8,255 who turned out at Riley Park, less than 200 from the record attendance of 8,426 set on opening night 2007.

Rodriguez and Nunez were in Charleston with Pat Roessler, the Yankees' director of player development based in Tampa.

A-Rod hopes he can start having a positive impact on the Yankees after last year's disappointing season and his benching during the AL championship series.

"I've got to tell you," Rodriguez said. "I'm really, really excited. This probably has to be the hardest injury I've tried to overcome. It has to be the longest."
