    I thought he retired?
    Did he get a new bionic leg?

      Junior ties Ott (unofficial HR milestone thread)

      I know it happened two days ago, but I was surprised this wasn't mentiuoned somewhere on this forum.

      Anyhoo, Junior hit his career homerun number 511 to tie Mel Ott for 18th on the all time list.

        that's because i don't start thinking about his career homeruns until he's near the next hundred mark. so i pay little attention until he's closer to 600. that said, time for the good ol'd sticky.

          oh yeah, this series against Baltimore is the first time three guys in the 500 home run club have played in the same game. Griffey (512), Palmeiro (559), and Sosa (582).

          Junior is tied with Ernie Banks and Eddie Mathews for 16th all time. he needs 9 more to catch up to Willie McCovey and Ted Williams.

              That means he also tied Eddie Mathews and Ernie Banks.

                Why did you think that? he has been injured, but there's never been a hint of retirement talk.

                  Griffey hit a game-winning homer (#513) today and is now 16th all time by himself passing Ernie Banks and Eddie Mathews.
                  Unlike most other team sports, in which teams usually have an equivalent number of players on the field at any given time, in baseball the hitting team is at a numerical disadvantage, with a maximum of 5 players and 2 base coaches on the field at any time, compared to the fielding team's 9 players. For this reason, leaving the dugout to join a fight is generally considered acceptable in that it results in numerical equivalence on the field, and a fairer fight.

                    Griffey clubbed two homers tonight in Cleveland to give him 515 all time, moving him to 16th all time.

                        #517 on the Fourth of July. Grif has homered on every Holiday he's played in the last 2 seasons.

                        #518 to tie it and eventually beat Arizona (July 8)

                          I think it should be noted that his 1,500 RBI was on HR #518.

                            When did he shatter Hammerin Hank's record of 2297 RBI?

                              hit number 519 last night...

                              number 518 was his 1,500 RBI.
