Alex Rodriguez is the youngest player to hit 500 home runs, which broke Jimmie Foxx’s record set in 1939, and the youngest to hit 600, breaking Babe Ruth’s record by over a year.
Alex Rodriguez has fourteen 100-RBI seasons in his career, more than any other player. He surpassed Sammy Sosa’s 609 HR mark in 2010 and became the all-time leader in home runs by a player of Hispanic decent. Alex has one of the richest contracts in baseball history under his belt when the Yankees agreed to a 10-year $275 million contact.
An avid art collector and owner of a Mercedes-Benz dealership in League City, Texas, Alex Rodriguez is also a philanthropist. In 2003, he gave $3.9 million to the University of Miami to renovate its baseball stadium which was later named Alex Rodriguez Park at Mark Light Field. He is the recipient of the 2007 University of Miami’s Edward T. Foote II Alumnus of Distinction Award and is on the University of Miami’s Board of Trustees.
On June 20, 2015, Alex hit his 3,001st career hit, to surpass Roberto Clemente on the all-time MLB hit-list. He now mostly works as a designated hitter for the Yankees. On April 19 of 2016, Alex became one of only 19 players to make over 12,000 career plate appearances.
