Today in White Sox History: September 16


Sept. 16, 2007 — White Sox slugger Jim Thome joined an exclusive club when he hammered his 500th career home run in the ninth inning of a White Sox 9-7 win over the Angels at U.S. Cellular Field. Thome was playing in his 2,000th career game when he connected off Dustin Moseley for the win.

The Sox trailed 7-1 at one point before coming back. It was the first time that the 500th home run for a player was a walk-off winner. Jim would hit 134 home runs in a White Sox uniform.

I kinda miss Jim Thome, you know?

I certainly miss his ability to get on base and drive in runs that’s for sure, unlike half of the clowns who make up the roster today.

With any luck (heh) half that half of clowns will be gone next season.
