Luis Gonzalez's 350th Home Run

I saw the home run on a replay of the game but I had no idea it was a milestone .

Not to be overshadowed on a night Manny Ramirez hit his 500th home run and Ken Griffey Jr. belted No. 599 was Luis Gonzalez circling the bases for the 350th time in his career.

The homer also was Gonzalez's 342nd while playing in left field. Many would be surprised to find out that he's third in baseball history for that position. The only players to go deep more while playing left field are Barry Bonds (725) and Ted Williams (477).

Congrats Gonzo!

I really need to read my media guide more often.
