June 20, 2007: Texas Rangers slugger Sammy Sosa hits his 600th career home run against his former team, the Chicago Cubs.

Sosa was the fifth player ever to record 600 home runs, following Ruth, Mays, Aaron, and Bonds chronologically. To this day, only A-Rod, Ken Griffey, and Thome have joined the elite group of baseball's greatest power-hitters.

He ended his career with 609 home runs, 2,408 hits, and a batting average of .273. Sosa made seven all-star teams, and would be a likely Hall-of-Famer if it wasn't for the performance-enhancing drug controversy.

Sosa spent the majority of his career with the Chicago Cubs (1992-2004).
