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.

Rodriguez, with his historic home run, became only the seventh player in baseball history to reach the 600 home run mark, joining Barry Bonds, Hank Aaron, Babe Ruth, Willie Mays, Ken Griffey, Jr. and Sammy Sosa. This historic baseball is an Official Major League Allan H. Selig sphere covertly marked with the assignation “A 104”. This was pre-marked by Major League baseball in anticipation of A-Rod joining the 600 Home Run Club. Rodriguez has signed the sweet spot in blue pen, inscribing “600th HomeRun Baseball”, #13” and “Hit on 8-4-2010 @Yankee Stadium". This bona fide piece of baseball history is accompanied by an MLB Authenticated hologram (FJ095971) and LOA from Rodriguez himself.
