Alex Rodriguez started his professional career with the Appleton Foxes in 1994.  He played just under a half a season for the Foxes as the youngest player int he Midwest League and hit 14 homers.

On August 4, 2010, he hit his 600th major league home run.
There was little doubt off the bat.

With 47,659 fans filling the seats, Derek Jeter on first base, two outs and a 2-0 count against Toronto's Shaun Marcum in the first inning of Wednesday's 5-1 Yankees win, Alex Rodriguez became the seventh and youngest man in Major League history to hit 600 home runs with a shot to center field. The baseball -- specially branded with "A104" -- landed, perhaps fittingly, in the netting that guards Monument Park beyond Yankee Stadium's center-field wall, where it was snatched by security guard Frankie Babilonia.
