While many of us have a phobia of public speaking, Alex Rodriguez is not one of them. For example, not only did he make a commencement address to recent graduates at his admired University of Miami, but he took a selfie on stage … because of course he did.

The 14-time All-Star will be in the company of MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver, Nate Silver, Steve Nash and the 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama at a Boston sports conference in February:

That's an incredible group of people to spend the day talking sports with.
