MLB Milestones May 2015

A few big time numbers were reached in May and none bigger than Alex Rodriguez passing Willie Mays in HR’s and Lou Gehrig in RBI’s. As controversial as A-Rod has been over the years, what he is doing is pretty amazing considering he didn’t play any ball last year and I am not a Yankees fan or an A-Rod fan.
