On Thursday, New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez hit his first regular season home run since returning to baseball after a one-year suspension. 

With nobody out in the bottom of the sixth, and his team trailing 5-1, A-Rod hit a 1-0 pitch from Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Daniel Norris into the left-center field seats. 

The home run is Rodriguez's 655th in his career, five behind Willie Mays for fourth on the all-time list.
