Miguel Cabera hits 300th homer
DETROIT -- Detroit slugger Miguel Cabrera has hit his 300th homer, becoming the second Venezuela-born player to reach that mark.
Cabrera reached the milestone with a mammoth shot to center in the third inning against the Chicago White Sox -- his second homer in Sunday's game. He's the 14th player to reach 300 homers before turning 30, according to STATS, LLC.
Andres Galarraga is the career leader in homers for players born in Venezuela with 399.
Cabrera is 29 years, 95 days old. When Hank Aaron was that age, he had 309 home runs, according to STATS. Barry Bonds had 222 by that age.
A Tigers spokesman, citing ESPN Stats and Info, said Cabrera's second homer of the day was estimated at 457 feet.
