3. 500th home run — Aug. 22, 2021
We've all seen the 500th home run. We've also covered it at length already this month, so we won't spend too much time on this one. But you may be wondering how it only ends up at No. 3 on this list.
For starters, it happened on the road. If it had happened at Comerica Park, it would have so much harder. The roar of the crowd would have been unlike anything we've ever heard.
It also just feels like the other two moments we put ahead of it just feel like they had more impact. The next one, while also taking place on the road, is such memorable moment and showcased so much greatness that we had to put it ahead of No. 500.
Hitting 500 home runs in a career is a heck of an accoplishment, but we still feel like there are two moments that are better.
