Alex Rodriguez wore this navy New York Yankees batting helmet on July 18, 2010, when the slugger hit career home run #598 in a 9-5 Yankees win over the Tampa Bay Rays at Yankee Stadium. Rodriguez led off the bottom of the seventh with a fly ball to left center on the first pitch of the inning from Tampa pitcher Andy Sonnanstine.  He went 2-for-4 that day in total, with a single, two RBI and two runs scored.  The Yankees defeated the Rays, 9-5, thanks in part to Rodriguez two hit, two RBI performance.

This historic batting helmet is a Rawlings size 7 ¼, with the Yankees iconic interlocking “NY” logo applied to the front of the helmet in white. Rodriguez’s number “13” is applied to the brim and the back of the helmet in white, while an MLB logo decal is also applied to the back of the helmet. The ear flap is present over the left ear and all the interior padding is intact.

Rodriguez has signed the left side of this helmet in silver marker, inscribing “Game Used Career HR #598 7-18-2010” in addition to his signature. After a 22-year Major League Baseball career, Rodriguez retired with 696 career home runs, fourth all-time behind Barry Bonds, Hank Aaron and Babe Ruth. This batting helmet comes with an MLB Authenticated hologram (FJ095657) and a LOA signed by Rodriguez for the game use and signature.
