Ken Griffey Jr passes Mark Mcgwire, as 7th on all time homerun leader, Jr, is now 16 homeruns away from joining the 600 club. Now in the last three seasons of MBL, the 600 club has grown from three members to five and soon to be six members. After all these years, it took about thrity years for this class to double in size. Now that is very rare that we can see this. In the last ten years we have seen Mark Mcgwire, brake Roger Maris's single season homerun record. Then we watched Barry Bonds, brake Mcgwire's record brake 3 more than what Mcrire hit. Now we are seeing Sammy Sosa join the 600 club, with Ken Griffey Jr, right behind him.
With A Rod being the youngest and fastest slugger to hit 500 career homeruns, and looking to have about 800 homeruns before he puts away his bat. However, right now we will see Barry Bonds brake Hank Aarons, career homerun record ( 755). When in sports history have seen this before. It is almost blowing on these records being broken, ratings is going through the roof.
Alot of people whom never cared about Baseball are becoming fans. These is and will be great for the fans and players and everybody that in sports. Nuff said.
