A-Rod hits 500th Home Run

Thanks A-Rod for nullifying my previous post, guess in my hast to put something up here I maybe jinxed myself and given you the motivation to get it done already.

Alex became the youngest player (32 years, 8 days) ever to hit 500 home runs, passing Jimmie Fox (32 years, 338 days). The home run came against the Royals and new acquired and former Brave, Kyle Davies who has now given up 13 homers in only 87 innings pitched. He now becomes the 22nd player to join the 500, which now-a-days seems to have a new member every month. By seasons end he should rank 17th passing Ernie Banks's 512 and just below Ted Williams's and Willie McCovey at 521.

This 500 club could also see 3 more added to the list by seasons end. Jim Thome currently has 489, Manny Ramirez 488 and Gary Sheffield at 478.

Congrats to A-Rod.
