A-Rod hits 600th Home Run

Alex Rodriguez hit the 600th home run of his career in Yankee Stadium on Wednesday, making him, at 35, the youngest player in history to join the 600 club. Only six others have hit 600. Exactly three years after hitting his 500th home run, Rodriguez ended his 12-game run-free slump. Batting off the Toronto Blue Jays’ Shaun Marcum in the first inning with Derek Jeter on first base, A-Rod hit a homer straightaway to center field.
