On This Day 6/20/2004
It is a Father’s Day to remember, as Ken Griffey Jr. of the Cincinnati Reds hit his 500th home run off Matt Morris in a 6-0 win over the St. Louis Cardinals at Busch Stadium. Junior is the 20th member of the 500 home run club. Making the event, extra special, his father was in attendance as they hugged after he crossed home plate. Ken Griffey Jr. would retire in 2010 with 630 homers.
