The A-Rod Top 10 – #7

by Owen Hetherington


500th Career Home Run (August 4, 2007)

Alex Rodriguez entered the game sitting at 499 career home runs after going deep nine games before on July 25, 2007. It was taking a while for him to get #500.

In the bottom of the first inning against the Kansas City Royals, Rodriguez hit his 500th career home run to left field off Kyle Davies with runners on first and second. He was greeted at home plate and given a big hug by his teammate Derek Jeter, becoming the 22nd player in Major League history to hit 500 home runs.

The Least Among Them.png

"This charming and meticulously researched book will remind you of baseball’s power to change and enrich lives far beyond the diamond."

—Jonathan Eig, New York Times best-selling author of Luckiest Man, Opening Day, and Ali: A Life

From Compton to the Bronx.jpg

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
