This Day In Yankees History 6/10

On this day in 1921 Babe Ruth hit his 120th career home run to become the all time home run hitter in major league history. This record would hold until 1974 when Hank Aaron passed him with his 715th home run of his career.

On this day in 2002 Marcus Thames becomes the 17th player in major league history to hit a home run in the first pitch that he saw in his major league career. Marcus would hit the home run off of Randy Johnson of all people to start his career.
