The wait is over for MLB betting fans. 12 games and 46 at-bats later and Alex Rodriguez has joined the elite club of 600 home runs in Major League Baseball. Although the cloud of a steroid admission a few years ago has put somewhat of a black cloud over the accomplishment, you cannot downplay the achievement totally. Rodriguez has done what only six other players have done before in history. Rodriguez has also done it in the shortest amount of time, becoming the youngest player of all time to reach 600.
Shaun Marcum was the pitcher who served up the pitch. Rodriguez did not think it was going to clear the wall at first, but was jubilant when it did. He pumped his fist around first base, and was congratulated by his teammates, most notably Derek Jeter. With the chase for 600 over, he turns his attention to a bigger moment.
