Congratulations to Minnesota Twins slugger Jim Thome for bashing home run number 600 last night! He’s one of only eight ballplayers to accomplish this feat in Major League Baseball. At 40 he’s the oldest player to do it but reached the milestone in one of the fewest at-bat totals.
Thome spent most of his career playing against the Twins when with Cleveland and Chicago, but tried as I might I just couldn’t hate the guy. He’s one of the true gentlemen of the game and a throwback to the old ballplayer who played for the love of the game and not money. He’s been one of the only bright spots in a bad season for the hometown nine.
Congratulations, Jim Thome!
