Alex Rodriguez Joins Aaron in two,000-RBI Club

Alex Rodriguez has joined Hank Aaron as the only players in important league history with 2,000 career RBIs.

Rodriguez hit a two-run homer Saturday evening for the New York Yankees in a game against the Baltimore Orioles. The sixth-inning drive off Bud Norris lifted A-Rod’s career RBI total to 2,001.

Hank Aaron ranks first on the career list with two,297 RBIs.

Records get tricky when it comes to runs batted in, partly mainly because RBIs did not turn out to be an official stat till 1920. So when baseball-reference.com lists Babe Ruth with 2,214 and Cap Anson with two,075, the Elias Sports Bureau — baseball’s official statistician — puts Rodriguez ahead of both of them.

It was the 666th profession residence run for Rodriguez, fourth on baseball’s all-time list behind Ruth, Aaron and Barry Bonds.
