600: A mildstone

A-Rod could join baseball’s once-exclusive 600-HR?club this weekend:

1. Barry Bonds (1986-2007)

HRs: 762

The all-time HRs leader and suspected steroid user could have made this list on natural ability alone. The guy was cranking out 35 homers a year even before he hammered a record 73 in ’01.

2. Hank Aaron (1954-76)


He’s still considered by many as the true home runs leader.

3. Babe Ruth (1914-35)


The Sultan of Swat owns the best slugging percentage (.690) in history.

4. Willie Mays (1951-73)

HRs: 660

Maybe the best all-around player ever.

5. Ken?Griffey Jr. (1989-2010)

HRs: 630

The sweetest (and cleanest) swing.

6. Sammy Sosa (1989-2007)

HRs: 609

Another tainted slugger.
