A-Rod also making some history

We’ve been hearing a lot about Derek Jeter’s place in history lately. But don’t forget Alex Rodriguez.

Alex Rodriguez has 100 RBI and 101 runs scored and has now reached those plateaus for 11 consecutive seasons. It’s the longest streak since Lou Gehrig did it 13 straight years from 1926-38.

Not Mays, Aaron, Mantle, DiMaggio or Williams. That’s a pretty impressive display of greatness and consistency.

Alex needs one more home run to have hit at least 35 in 11 consecutive seasons. That would make him and Babe Ruth the only players in history to have 35 homers and 100 RBI in 11 separate seasons.
