A-Rod Hit His 660th HR To Tie Willie Mays, Of Course It Was A Game-Winner At Fenway

Alex Rodriguez belted his 660th career home run on Friday night to tie Hall of Famer, Willie Mays, for 4th on the all-time HR list. He now trails, Babe Ruth, Hank Aaron, and Barry Bonds, respectively.

It’s almost fitting that it would come at Fenway, as a pinch hit nonetheless. Ironically, it’s the first pinch-hit home run of A-Rod’s career.

Here was the sight as he made it back to the dugout.

Lo and behold, Rodriguez’s blast wound up being the game winning run. Sometimes history just writes itself.

Love him or hate him, you’ve got to respect him. Now, by no means am I an A-Rod fan, but this is baseball history plain and simple. And for what it’s worth, I’m one to believe that no amount of steroids can teach a perfect, contact swing.

Next up on the list: George Herman Ruth with 714 HRs. The Babe’s mark appears to be quite a ways for A-Rod to go. Tonight’s record-matcher was his 5th of the season. For perspective, he hit only 7 home runs in 44 games in 2013 before being suspended for the remainder of the season and the 2014 campaign in its entirety.
