    IIRC, he'll only be the 20th player to do it (or only 20 have done it previously) plus, he'll be the youngest to ever do it. It's huge!
    He'll be like the third or 4th youngest to get to 500. Those injury years really cost him.

    Yeah the injury years are quite depressing, seeing that he was on pace to shatter Hank Aaron's record.

    I wish they had a longer homestand. With how Griffey is doing I think he should be doing a lot better in the all star voting. When I looked the other day he was only 500 votes ahead of Biggio.

    Very nice picture.
    It shows him rounding 2nd, and them changing the homerun board at the same time.

    I'm only kidding; I didn't take them.

    I wish I had one of Adam flipping his bat after hitting that HR in the 10th.

    There are some great pics in this thread, but that one is my favorite. Everything in the picture looks still, even his gaze is directly at the ball, but the ball and the bat head are just blurs on a collision course. It captures the incredible difficulty of hitting a sphere moving at 90+mph with a round stick, squarely.
    I'd title this 'Wheelhouse'...no pitcher should spot that ball there against Mr. Griffey.
