6. Passing Willie Mays
A-Rod hit the 661st home run of his career off Baltimore Orioles’ pitcher Chris Tillman on May 8th of 2015. The blast broke a 2-2 tie in an eventual Yankee victory.
That blast pushed him ahead of Willie Mays on baseball’s all-time home run list.
Rodriguez probably won’t get to Aaron or Bonds, but it’s very likely he’ll surpass Ruth in 2016.
