Rodriguez joined Mel Ott, Tony Conigliaro and Eddie Mathews as the four youngest players to reach the 100-career home run mark. A-Rod’s seventh inning home run was also the 36th of the 1998 season. 1998 was the first season in which Rodriguez topped the 40-home run mark as he finished the season with 42 round-trippers, while adding 124 RBI and a .310 batting average. A-Rod also led the American League in hits with 213 was a recipient of the Silver Slugger Award.
