A-Rod finally hits 600th homer; is seventh all-time on list

New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez became the youngest player to hit 600 home runs. He hit the historic homer into Yankee Stadium’s Monument Park in center field exactly three years to the day after his 500th homer.

A-Rod reached the long-awaited milestone Wednesday after a 12-game drought with a first-inning homer off Toronto’s Shaun Marcum. Rodriguez connected on a 2-0 pitch over the middle of the plate, number 17 of the season giving the Yankees a 2-0 lead.

Rodriguez joins the elite list of all-time home run hitters: Barry Bonds (762), Hank Aaron (755), Babe Ruth (714), Willie Mays (660), Ken Griffey Jr. (630) and Sammy Sosa (609).

Rodriguez is among only three players, along with Reggie Jackson and Darrell Evans, to hit 100 home runs for three different teams. A-Rod has played for Seattle, Texas and now the Yankees.
