NEW YORK (AP) - Barry Bonds has congratulated Alex Rodriguez for hitting his 600th home run and is wishing the New York Yankees star good luck in his chase for the all-time homer record.

Bonds holds the lifetime record with 762 home runs.

Bonds put out a message on his website, welcoming Rodriguez to the 600-homer club. Bonds says he hopes Rodriguez stays healthy and focused, telling A-Rod that “you only have 163 to go.”

Rodriguez hit his 600th home run on Wednesday. Bonds says he’ll be watching and rooting for Rodriguez the rest of the way.
