Alex Rodriguez entered very rarefied air on Wednesday afternoon when he smacked his 600th career home run in the first inning against the Toronto Blue Jays.

What is singularly special about the achievement is that not only is A-Rod the seventh man to reach 600 home runs, but he is first infielder to reach the milestone.

That got us thinking about the best power hitting infielders of all-time. There are a few in the 500 Home Run Club and others who aren’t, but the entire group left an impact on the game for being the rare combination of a slugging infielder.

Note: This list only includes shortstops, second baseman and first baseman.
