On This Day In Baseball History: August 27, 2005

Jeff Kent

 

Los Angeles Dodgers second baseman Jeff Kent hits his 300th career homer becoming the first second baseman in history to eclipse 300. The 2000 NL MVP would finish his career with 377 homers with 351 of them coming while playing second base. His 351 homers as a second baseman is still the record, 74 ahead of second place Ryne Sandberg. Dan Uggla, Chase Utley, and Robinson Cano are the only active second baseman with 200 career homers.
