Barry Bonds congratulates Alex Rodriguez on 3,000th hit

Earlier this season, Alex Rodriguez passed Willie Mays for fourth on Major League Baseball’s all-time home run list with No. 661. On Friday, Rodriguez reached another milestone.

In the first inning, Rodriguez came up to bat one hit shy of 3,000 for his career. On the first pitch he saw, the 39-year-old hit a solo home run to right field off of Justin Verlander, who was making just his second start of the season.

Rodriguez joined a select group of players to amass 3,000+ hits and 600+ home runs that also includes Mays and Hank Aaron. Among the first to congratulate him was MLB’s all-time home run leader, Barry Bonds.

Heading into the season, it was anyone’s guess what (if anything) the Yankees would get from Alex Rodriguez but, thus far, he’s probably exceeded everyone’s expectations. Rodriguez is currently hitting .279 with 13 home runs and and 35 RBI in 64 games. And, he looks to be once again enjoying baseball.
