Alex Rodriguez has gone 26 at-bats since hitting his 499th career home run. But he’s not the first guy to wait for that milestone. Here are the longest gaps between 499 and 500 in baseball history:

Jimmie Foxx (1941) 61 ABs
Harmon Killebrew (1971) 43 ABs
Mickey Mantle (1967) 28 ABs
Alex Rodriguez (2007) 26 ABs
Eddie Murray (1996) 21 ABs
Ken Griffey Jr. (2004) 21 ABs
