New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez is the newest member of baseball's 3,000 hit club.  The 39-year-old designated hitter homered in the first inning off Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander to reach the vaunted milestone. 

"A-Rod" is the 29th player to collect 3,000 career hits, tying Hall of Famer Roberto Clemente on the all-time list.  Al Kaline is next with 3,007 hits.  Rodriguez is back playing this year after a season-long, performance-enhancing drug suspension in 2014
