Alex Rodriguez is no stranger to setting records. He will always be linked for his record-setting baseball contracts of $252M and $275M, setting a record for 211 games suspension by Major League Baseball for his involvement in P.E.D.s, and now passing the late Yankee great and Baseball Hall Of Famer, Lou Gehrig, with his 24th career grand slam. The opposite field home run came off of George Kontos in the seventh inning that broke a 1-1 tie that giving the playoff chasing Yankees a 5-1 victory Friday night against the San Francisco Giants. Take a look at Arod’s grand slam.

Arod’s home run snaps a 1 for 25 slump and a needed victory for the New York Yankees, who have been slumping as of late. Yankees started the night 3 games back for the last wildcard spot. As for Arod, I’m not sure how this record will play as Alex passes a Yankee legend; but since he is still a member of the pinstripes at least its remains in the Yankee family.
