A-Rod moving up the home run charts

Posted by: Peter Abraham - Posted in Misc on Sep 08, 2007 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Alex Rodriguez seems to set a record of some sort every time he swings the bat these days. His home run last night gave him 47 as a third baseman this season (he had two as a DH on Wednesday). He needs only two more to set the single-season record for that position.

Most home runs by a 3B
1. Mike Schmidt (Phillies 1980) 48
1. Adrian Beltre (Dodgers 2004) 48
3. Alex Rodriguez (Yankees 2007) 47

He already has the record at shortstop

Most home runs as a SS
1. Alex Rodriguez (Rangers 2002) 57

Then there is this:

Most home runs in a season by a Yankee
1. Roger Maris (1961) 61
2. Babe Ruth (1927) 60
3. Babe Ruth (1921) 59
4. Babe Ruth (1928) 54
4. Babe Ruth (1920) 54
4. Mickey Mantle (1961) 54
7. Mickey Mantle (1956) 52
8. Alex Rodriguez (2007) 49
8. Babe Ruth (1930) 49
8. Lou Gehrig (1934) 49
8. Lou Gehrig (1936) 49
