A-Rod Hits Number 500 New York Wins 16-8

New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez became the youngest player in MLB history to hit 500 career home runs as the Yankees beat up the Kansas City Royals Saturday 16-8. A-Rod went 3-4, scoring three runs, driving in three and had a walk for good measure. Rodriguez becomes the 22nd MLB player to attain 500, and at 32 years and 9 days he is now the youngest , edging out former youngest player Jimmie Foxx who was 32 years and 337 days old when he accomplished the feat.
