Alfonso Soriano Hits #300

Friday, June 11, 2010 marks the day that Alfonso Soriano hit his 300th Homerun and his 9th of the 2010 season.  He shares this accomplishment with Derrek Lee who joined the 300 Club just two days ago.  He is tied for 125th on the all-time homers list and now one behind Rogers Hornsby.  However, he is 21th on the list of active players.  He is six away from catching Pudge Rodriguez on the active list and less than 20 from catching Berkman, Glaus and Carlos Lee.  Pretty good company. Congrats on this great milestone.
