Today in Sports History (August 15th)

August 15, 2011
Jim Thome becomes the eighth player to reach the 600 career home runs mark when he hits a two-run homer in the sixth (599), followed by three-run blast an inning later off Detroit’s Daniel Schlereth. Needing fewer at-bats to reach 600 than anyone except for Babe Ruth, the 40-year-old Twins slugger accomplishes the feat in his 8,167th at-bat, compared to the Bambino’s 6,921.
