Reaching certain milestones in baseball, such as the 3,000 hit mark, are a big deal. Some players have made the achievement even more special by launching a home run to reach the milestone.
These long balls give added meaning to the milestone as the players join a short list of those who have reached the mark by hitting a long ball.
Home runs captivate fans, and when players are racing towards the single-season home run record, all eyes are drawn to them. Once they finally hit the record breaker, it is a memorable occasion.
