Box score of the week

April 27, 1971 - The Atlanta Braves hosted the San Francisco Giants.


In this game, the Braves' Hank Aaron hit his 600th career home run. With slugger Willie Mays playing for the Giants, it marked the first time in MLB history where two players with at least 600 career home runs played in the same game.

If Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez is activated from the DL and plays this weekend, he and the Twins' Jim Thome would be only the second pair of players with at least 600 homers each to participate in the same contest.
