On This Day In Baseball History: May 11, 2001

Carlos Delgado

 

Toronto Blue Jays first baseman Carlos Delgado hits his 204th homer as a Blue Jay passing Joe Carter on the Blue Jays all-time home run list. Delgado will extend the record to 336, a record that still stands. While Delgado averaged 28 homers a year and had as many as 44 in his 12 years with the Jays he never lead the AL. Carter currently is fourth on the Jays all-time home run list having been passed by Vernon Wells (223) and Jose Bautista (208 and counting).
