A-Rod hits first home run since returning from yearlong suspension

Friday April 10th, 2015

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.
