DETROIT (AP) — Gary Sheffield still needs four home runs to reach 500. In the meantime, he provided a milestone for Major League Baseball.
His second home run of the night was the 250,000th in major league history, according to, and the Detroit Tigers beat the Oakland Athletics 14-8.


For you baseball junkies out there, this is quite a notable feat. According to, the Cubs' Ross Barnes is credited with MLB's first home run. It was served up by Cincinnati's Cherokee Fisher on May 2, 1876.

This story is a nice alternative to the otherwise disappointment of a season from the Detroit Tigers.

How many days 'til Opening Day?...
