There are only a few people that can say they have hit 600 home runs in their career, 8 to be exact.  The eighth member of that club joined it last night.  Jim Thome hit both his 599th and 600th career homers in Minnesota’s 9-6 win over Detroit.  Thome is near the end of his long storied career, and last night he just gave more proof as to why he is one of the games best power hitters.

At 40 years old Thome joins the likes of Willie Mays, Ken Griffey Jr, Babe Ruth and Hank Aaron in the 600 home run club.  He is 9 home runs behind Sammy Sosa for the 7 spot on the all time home run list.  Alex Rodriguez who, along with Thome, is the only other active player in the 600 home run club is in the 6 spot with 626.  He will no doubt pass Sosa by the end of this season to take the 7th all time spot, but who knows how much longer the veteran player will go for.

Congratulations to Jim Thome on his 600th home run.  It’s been a lot of fun watching you over the years.
