Alex Rodriguez Ties Ken Griffey Jr. On MLB Career Home Runs List

Alex Rodriguez and Ken Griffey Jr. have been linked to each other since the two were young star teammates with the Seattle Mariners. Now, they're tied for fifth place on the MLB career home run list.

Rodriguez hit a solo blast Friday during the third inning of the New York Yankees' home opener against the Los Angeles Angels to tie Griffey with 630 career home runs. Next in Rodriguez' path stands Willie Mays, who had 660 home runs.

Barry Bonds has the Major League record with 762 home runs, seven more than Hank Aaron (755). Babe Ruth is in third place with 714.
