Sammy Sosa - OTDBH

 

Texas Rangers designated hitter Sammy Sosa hits his 600th career homer in an inter league game between his former team, the Cubs. With the homer he joins Hank Aaron (755), Barry Bonds (748), Babe Ruth (714), and Willie Mays (660) as the fifth player to hit 600 career homers. Bonds, of course, will go on to surpass Aaron, though not without the controversy that will call Sosa’s career numbers into question as well. Sosa would finish his career with 609 long balls.
