Alex Rodriguez became a baseball immortal on August 4th, 2010 when the New York Yankees third baseman slugged the 600th home run of his legendary career. Rodriguez reached the 600 home run milestone in the midst of another solid year, finishing it with 30 longballs, 125 RBI and 74 runs scored, while batting .270. 

It was Rodriguez’s 17th home run of the year that elevated the former number one overall draft pick to the ultra-exclusive 600 Home Run Club. Rodriguez and the Yankees faced off against Toronto Blue Jays at Yankee Stadium as Rodriguez sat on number 599. Rodriguez came to bat against Shaun Marcum in the first inning, with Derek Jeter already on base, primed and ready to swing. On the third pitch of the at-bat, Rodriguez jumped on a pitch down the middle with his trademark right-handed swing, depositing the ball over the centerfield wall. Rodriguez and Jeter shared a hug at home plate after scoring, and the Yankee dugout emptied onto the field to properly congratulate the newly-minted member of the 600 Home Run Club.

This is the very bat A-Rod used to send that historic ball over the centerfield wall, joining the ultra-exclusive club. This Louisville Slugger C271L model bat displays outstanding game use and is un-cracked. There are ball marks, bat rack streaks and cleat imprints present on the barrel. A-Rod has signed this historic bat in silver marker across the barrel and added the inscriptions “game used 600 Home Run 8-4-2010 at Yankee Stadium”. This is a true milestone gamer from one of baseball’s most dominant players and it comes with an MLB Authenticated hologram (FJ095970), who have authenticated this bat to Alex Rodriguez’s 600-home run game and specifically his 600th career home run on August 4th, 2010. There is also a LOA from Alex Rodriguez and this bat has been photo matched by Resolution Photomatching to Rodriguez's 600th home run.
