Congratulations to Jim Thome who hit his 600th homerun tonight to put the Minnesota Twins ahead of the Detroit Tigers.

Thome becomes the 8th player in history to achieve the feat and with two homers tonight he also becomes the 2nd fastest to hit the mark behind Babe Ruth.

Here's Thome a couple months ago making a promise for a bear hug when he hits that 600 mark:
