Jim Thome: The Quietest Member Of Baseball’s 600 Club | Only A Game

Earlier this summer, baseball fans and the assembled media watched in anticipation as the Yankees’ Derek Jeter approached 3000 hits. When he finally passed that mark on July 9, the news splashed across headlines from coast to coast.

Jeter was the 28th Major Leaguer to do it.

Earlier this week, Minnesota Twins slugger Jim Thome became just the eighth major leaguer to reach a far more elusive number: 600 career home runs. Only Babe Ruth, Willie Mays, Henry Aaron, Ken Griffey, Jr., Sammy Sosa, Barry Bonds, and Alex Rodriguez had done it before.
