2011 Headline: Jim Thome Joins 600-HR Club!!!
On this day in 2011, Jim Thome became just the eighth player in major league history to hit 600 or more home runs in his big league career.
The shot came against the Detroit Tigers in a game in which Thome also connected for #599.
In the seventh inning, and with two men on base, Thome launched a pitch from Daniel Schlereth over the outfield wall and made baseball history. Three runs scored, and the Twins won the game.
Happy Anniversary Mr. Thome!!!
