Congratulations to Jim Thome.
Jim Thome hit career home run number 600 tonight and I am delighted as he has been one of my favorite players since I was literally a kid. A couple thoughts on Thome and this incredible feat.
- Cooperstown bound? You better believe it.
- Yes, I know the photo above is from #596 but come on, that home run was violently crushed beyond belief and should have been #600 due to it’s pure epic-ness. Watch it HERE.
- Speaking of the photo above , it’s kind of ironic that Delman Young was still able to witness his ex-teammate’s accomplishment tonight even after being traded.
- I wish number #600 happened in Minnesota at Target Field as we all know how insane Twins fans can get. The Tigers fans still gave it up for him though which is always nice.
- Let’s hope he plays for another season or two.
- I think it’s safe to say that Harmon Killebrew would have beeen proud of him. Thome reps that awesome modern-throwback home jersey better than anyone else on the Twins.
ALL HAIL THOME.
