• A-Rod Sets HR Record On His 35th Birthday

    Well…kinda

    Prior to this season, of all the players with 600 career homeruns, Willie Mays took the longest in between #599 and #600, needing 21 At Bats to reach the milestone.

    Alex Rodriguez hit his 599th career homerun on July 22nd (this season) in the bottom of the 7th inning in a game against the Royals. And, he’s gone “homer less” in the 21 At Bats to follow that blast – including tonight’s game, which was played on his 35th birthday. This ties the “21 At Bat” spell set by Mays. And, considering that A-Rod’s next At Bat will be his 22nd since his 599th career homerun, he will now own the “Most At Bats needed between HR #599 and #600″ record – locking it up with his “collar” this evening.
