The A-Rod Top 10 – #6
by Owen Hetherington
600th Career Home Run (August 4, 2010)
Three years to the day after hitting his 500th career home run, Rodriguez put his 600th big fly out of the new Yankee Stadium on a 2-0 pitch with Jeter on first.
At the age of 34, Rodriguez became the youngest player in Major League history to reach the 600th home run threshold. He was once again greeted by the captain as he touched home plate to become the seventh player in Major League history to reach 600.
