Yankees Giancarlo Stanton becomes the fifth fastest player to make 300 home runs in MLB history



The 300 Home Run Club has added its 147th member

Thursday night at Yankee Stadium, Yankees Slugger Giancarlo Stanton cracked a two-barreled home side play against Tigers left Francisco Liriano for his 300th career Homer. It was his 33rd Homer of the season, so the other 267 came with the Marlins.

Here is video of the milestone explosion.

Thursday is the 1

.119. Game of Stanton's career. Only four players achieved in fewer games 300 Homer's: Hall of Famer Ralph Kiner (1,087), Ryan Howard (1,093), Juan Gonzalez (1,096) and Alex Rodriguez (1,117).

Stanton is also the ninth youngest player to have scored 300 career homeruns. Here's the list:

  1. Alex Rodriguez: 27 years, 249 days
  2. Jimmie Foxx: 27 years, 328 days
  3. Ken Griffey Jr.: 28 years, 143 days [19659009] Andruw Jones : 28 years, 144 days
  4. Albert Pujols: 28 years, 170 days
  5. Mel Ott: 28 years, 171 days
  6. Eddie Mathews: 28 years, 187 days
  7. Mickey Mantle: 28 years, 258 days
  8. Giancarlo Stanton: 28 years, 295 days

Stanton went on Thursday with .275 / .349 / .517 (129 OPS +) with 32 home runs in his first season in New York. He was also in a 6-for-38 skid since his 299th career homer, though it should be noted that Stanton had robbed a home run over the weekend. Orioles rookie center fielder Cedric Mullins stole Stanton's 300-year homer Saturday afternoon

Stanton would have been the fourth-fastest to 300 homers if Mullins had not robbed that homer on Saturday. He has to settle for fifth speed, which is still cool.
