Griffey Hits #600

Monday June 9, 2008
MIAMI (AP) -- Ken Griffey Jr. hit his 600th home run on Monday
night to become the sixth player in history to reach that
milestone. The Cincinnati star homered off Marlins left-hander Mark
Hendrickson with Jerry Hairston on third and one out in the first
inning.

The left-handed swinger launched a 3-1 pitch 413 feet into the
right-field seats. Former Chicago Cubs slugger Sammy Sosa is fifth on the all-time list with 609 home runs.
