He is currently first in runs scored and total bases; second in extra base hits and RBI, and 4th in hits among all players in baseball history since their 31st birthday. Also, Rodriguez has more HR, RBI, runs scored and more base hits than all-time leaders Hank Aaron (RBI), Barry Bonds (HR), Rickey Henderson (runs scored), and Pete Rose (hits) did before their 31st birthdays. He is the youngest player ever to hit 500 home runs, breaking the record Jimmie Foxx set in 1939.
In 2009, he admitted to using steroids from 2001-2003, during his time with the Texas Rangers, in order to become better at baseball. I'm just going to say that a-rod is suspended from Major League Baseball because he took steroids. We'll a-rod is really a good player he hit 503 home runs a lot of people was downed because he took steroids he is in the hall of fame that is pretty cool I wish I I would hit that many home runs im part of the editor Santa Sean I'm not suppose to say who edited this this is for all the haters that hate a-rod.congrats a-rod you made it to the baseball hall of fame
