The return of Alex Rodriguez to the New York Yankees just hours after he was handed a record-long drug suspension from baseball helped produce the highest television rating of the season for the team’s regional network.

Last night’s game between the Yankees and the Chicago White Sox in Chicago drew a 4.3 rating on the Yankees Entertainment & Sports Network, according to figures provided by YES.

The previous high was a 4.2 for the Yankees’ game against the New York Mets on May 27, according to YES.
