600: A mildstone

<p>Alex Rodriguez ain’t like he used to be. And neither is the 600 home run club.</p>

 

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)



HRs:?755



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

 

3. Babe Ruth (1914-35)



HRs:?714




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.
