Sammy Sosa hits his 600th home run against the Cubs

Playing against the Chicago Cubs, Sammy Sosa became the fifth member of the 600-homer club on Wednesday.

Sammy Sosa hits his 600th home run against the Cubs The only difference this time - Sammy Sosa was on the other side. Playing for the Texas Rangers following a year out of baseball, Sosa hit a 1-2 pitch into his team's bullpen in right-center for a solo homer to joint the elite baseball club. Sammy Sosa played for the Chicago Cubs from 1992-2004 and got 545 of his home runs with the Cubs, which he has never faced before the series opener Tuesday night.

 A countdown banner that has hung in right field for about a month was flipped from 599 to 600  and a new banner was unfurled in center field congratulating Sosa for joining the 600-homer club.

 He was mobbed at home plate by his teammates while the scoreboard showed pictures of all five members of Sosa's new club: Hank Aaron (755 homers), Barry Bonds (748), Babe Ruth (714), Willie Mays (660) and Sammy Sosa (600). The cheering hadn't even subsided before Frank Catalanotto followed with a homer -- the 75th of his career, to give the Rangers a 6-1 lead.
